A group of Chattanoogans are hosting the first Chattanooga’s Gifts That Give Hope Fair, in honor of Porter Yarbrough, Nov. 29, from 5-9 p.m. at Coolidge Park. This holiday season Gifts That Give Hope will provide an opportunity for people to practice philanthropy while spending no more than what the cost of a gift would be.
Gifts That Give Hope provides an opportunity for people to give back to their community and honor their loved ones at the same time. Instead of buying traditional holiday gifts, shoppers honor their friends and family by donating to local nonprofits and supporting those who are not on anyone's list. For each donation made, receive a card describing the donation to give to as a gift.
The family event will include food from Virginia’s Gourmet by Design, pictures with Santa, story reading with Mrs. Claus, crafts by Macaroni Kids, fair trade gifts from Go Fish and more.
Gifts can also be purchased online at giftsthatgivehope.org/chattanooga through Dec. 31. The gift card will be mailed to you.
The 29th annual Lighted Boat Parade can be seen from Coolidge Park and begins at 7 p.m., followed by fireworks at 8 p.m. Additionally there will be live entertainment, carolers, food vendors, a live nativity scene and more.
