Hunt To Can Hunger Is March 29

12,000 Easter Egg Hunt Designed To Raise 1,200 Pounds Of Food

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Dynamic Church is partnering with the Chattanooga Area YMCA to help meet the need of filling the Salvation Army's pantry with non-perishable food items while providing an Easter Festival filled with fun for the family. The Salvation Army is close to having an empty pantry, and the goal of the “Hunt to Can Hunger” event is to raise 1,200 pounds of food to donate directly to the Chattanooga Salvation Army. 

The event starts at 4 p.m. on Friday, March 29, at the Hamilton YMCA on Shallowford Road. There will be activities for all age groups, including egg hunts and a bouncy house. The egg hunts starting at 5:30 p.m. will include 12,000 Easter eggs for children to collect and win prizes. There will also be a special appearance by the Easter Bunny for photos.  Chik-fil-a will also be on hand selling food with the Chik-fil-a Cow. Festival activities provide fun for the children between egg hunts.

Non-perishable food items as well as monetary donations to help meet the goal will be accepted on site.  Food items will be accepted in advance at local Chattanooga YMCA branches or make a financial donation online at HuntToCanHunger.com

Dynamic Church invites the public to celebrate Easter with them during their 10 a.m. worship experience on Sunday, March 31, at the Hamilton Family YMCA.
