Hunt To Can Hunger Features 12,000 Easter Egg Hunt To Collect 2,000 Pounds Of Food

Monday, April 7, 2014

Dynamic Church is partnering with the Chattanooga Area YMCA for the second year 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. Last year’s event resulted in a Chattanooga record 1,800 pounds of food donated directly to the Chattanooga Salvation Army. The goal of this year’s “Hunt to Can Hunger” event is to set a new record 2,000 pounds of food for those in the community affected by hunger.

The event starts at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, April 18, at the Hamilton Family YMCA on Shallowford Road. There will be activities for all age groups, including egg hunts and a bouncy house. The egg hunts begin at 5:30 p.m. and will include 12,000 Easter eggs for children to collect. There will also be a special appearance by the Easter Bunny for photos. Festival activities provide fun for the children between egg hunts. Pre-register a child for their egg hunt online at HuntToCanHunger.com 

Non-perishable food items as well as monetary donations to help meet the goal will be accepted on site. The food pantry is especially low on canned meats and breakfast items (cereal, bars, grits, oatmeal). Food items will be accepted in advance at the Hamilton Family YMCA 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, April 20, at the Hamilton Family YMCA.

Signal Mountain Should Be Problem Solvers Around The City

Re: Roy Exum’s “Stay, Signal Mountain, Stay”  Well this article is something to think about. I think the split could go either way, and Signal Mountain schools would still flourish, as they have done for the past several years. What I'm worried about is why Signal Mountain has not yet had the guts to go be problem solvers at Howard, or Tyner, or Central. Why do ... (click for more)
