Free School Supplies And Health Checks Offered At Destiny Church Of Chattanooga

Friday, July 28, 2017

The Destiny Church of Chattanooga (DCC) and the Hamilton County Health Department are teaming up to provide families with free school supplies, health screenings, clothes, and haircuts before the start of a new school year.

On Saturday, Aug. 5, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m., DCC will host its first annual Community Day celebration at 3801 Brainerd Road.

Pairing health fair activities with a back-to-school bash, the celebration will include self-care strategies for adults in addition to paper, pencils, and folders for students.

“To have healthy children, we have to have healthy families,” said DCC Pastor Sheryl Randolph. “We want to connect parents with support services that the Health Department provides. School is coming up and we want children to have backpacks and uniforms, but we also want parents to know that they are important and that they matter to us.”

The Destiny Church of Chattanooga is committed to empowering, encouraging, and equipping families with sustainable resources to help them thrive. As an experienced education administrator in Hamilton County, Randolph understands the value of helping parents and caregivers learn how to manage stress.

“Community Day is a time for families to relax before school starts,” she said. “We will have free food, uplifting music, and a prayer wall inside our church for people to post prayer requests so that we can pray for them throughout the year. Our goal is to serve 100 families. We want to love them, celebrate with them, and help them gain access to the tools they need to be successful.” 

Destiny Church of Chattanooga is at 3801 Brainerd Road, Chattanooga, Tn. 37411, 423 553-5009.
