Modern Hippie Presents *stay hydrated

Thursday, July 12, 2018

Due to recording-breaking heat this summer, Modern Hippie is going to give back to the community by aiming to provide everyone the opportunity to *stay hydrated.
 
With the help of Watcep, TMD and The Chance Foundation, Modern Hippie is going to provide 100 durable aluminum water bottles to local citizens who don’t have immediate access to water.

"As a form of love for our community, our mission is to keep the water bottles filled all summer to make sure citizens are safe in the heat.

A special thanks goes to Tim Brean, director of Sports Medicine at UTC, for contributing four coolers and water supply for the *stay hydrated campaign," officials said. 
 
“The key of the *stay hydrated campaign is meeting the physiological needs of the homeless in Chattanooga,” said Harlan Groves, director of Modern Hippie. “Our intentions are to build a foundation for a long-term impact, and nurture relations with those we serve.”
 
By starting the *stay hydrated campaign, Modern Hippie representatives say they want to help cultivate a younger crop of volunteers through social media and interactive service opportunities in order to help the Chattanooga community.
 
"Modern Hippie wants Chattanooga to come together as one to increase empathy in our city and spread the love for one another. In order to contribute to the *stay hydrated campaign, we encourage friendly, weekly volunteers to help distribute water to those in need," officials said.
 
Starting the week of July 16, Modern Hippie will need volunteers on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 1-3 p.m. to distribute water bottles and fresh water to those in need. The meeting location will be at Olivet Baptist Church, 740 E. Martin Luther King Blvd. and any updates will be announced via social media @modernhippie.us, on Instagram and @modernhippieUS on Twitter. To inquire about more information, contact Modern Hippie via email at contact.modernhippie@gmail.com and online at modernhippie.us.
