The Salvation Army has identified 75 needy families and registered them for Thanksgiving baskets. McCallie School was made aware of this need- and stepped up to assist the hungry and vulnerable.

Both The McCallie Middle School and Upper Schools collected turkeys/hens, potatoes, yams, vegetables dressing, and cranberry sauce for our local families who might not otherwise have a complete Thanksgiving meal to cook at home. 

"I love that community service is a part of the McCallie educational experience and the students serve beyond their campus," said Kimberly George, marketing director of The Salvation Army. "This teaches our younger generation so much more than what can be learned in the classrooms and we are so grateful McCallie is joining us in 'doing the most good'."  

The greater community is encouraged this holiday season to give their time just like these students. Volunteer opportunities can be found on www.csarmy.org. Folks can also call The Salvation Army at 756-1023. 

Monetary donations are also needed to assist with this year's increase in Christmas needs. Donations can be made by visiting www.csarmy.org, by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY  or can be mailed to: The Salvation Army, 822 McCallie Avenue, Chattanooga, TN 37403.  

For more information on The Salvation Army, please contact Ms. George at 756-1023 or by email to Kimberly.George@uss.salvationarmy.org

I’ll admit it – I would rather hurt than take an opioid pain pill. Hydrocodone and its cousins scare the willies out of me because once when I was ‘drug sick,’ it was the worst sickness I have ever known. For somebody who always has somewhere that it hurts, I know that opioids are wonderful when used properly but because they are increasingly abused by society, there are now over ... (click for more)
