United Way of Greater Chattanooga’s 2018 Chattanooga campaign kickoff will be held Tuesday from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Chattanooga Convention Center.
Michael Mathis, 2018 Chattanooga campaign chair, and Lesley Scearce, president and CEO at United Way of Greater Chattanooga, as well as community leaders, will speak on the goals and impact of the 2018 United Way campaign.
Matt Busby, director of The Camp House, will host a panel discussion on Chattanooga’s need for stability and family support. Members of United Way’s Building Stable Lives support program and city government will give firsthand reflections on the Chattanooga community’s needs. Led by Dr. Bryan Johnson, attendees will then raise funds live to place 2-1-1 kiosks in Hamilton County Schools.
Around 1,000 community members, including local dignitaries and United Way corporate partners, will be in attendance.
The 2018 Chattanooga Campaign Kickoff is sponsored by Bridge Innovate, Soundforce and Atomic Films.
