Chattanoogans from all over the city will be coming to Boyd-Buchanan School on Wednesday to participate in a city-wide service project that will have a global impact. Boyd-Buchanan will partner with Covenant Values Foundation to host Change the World Chattanooga II from Sept. 25-29.
Feed My Starving Children is the non-profit Christian charity organization that facilitates the project: making 1.5 million manna packs over the course of four days to be distributed to over 70 countries. These manna packs are used to feed severely malnourished and starving children across the globe.
There will be five tractor-trailers which will arrive empty on Wednesday night. These trucks will leave on Sunday loaded with these manna packs. All volunteers have to go to Changetheworldchattanooga.org to sign up. Volunteers serve for two hour time slots any time between 8:30 a.m.-10:30 p.m. for four straight days. The high school students will all participate in this service project on Thursday, and all of the 3rd-5th grade elementary students will participate on Friday morning.
Mayor Berke will be attending Change the World Chattanooga at Boyd-Buchanan School on Saturday at 4:15 p.m. and will speak at 4:30 p.m. .
