Members of the Greater Chattanooga Realtors presented $5,800 worth of gift cards to all teachers of East Brainerd Elementary School, which was almost completely destroyed in the April tornadoes.

Jay Young, 2020 Chair of the Community Partnerships Committee, said, “Our committee wanted to give back after the storms. We heard that this school had been decimated, and we wanted to help.”

Greater Chattanooga Realtors provided 116 teachers each a $50 gift card to use in their classroom. Members of the Community Partnerships Committee presented the gift cards to Principal Saunya Goss and other teachers of East Brainerd Elementary as they were moving into their temporary location at East Hamilton Middle High.

“It’s so encouraging and heartwarming to know that there is still compassion out there,” said Principal Goss. “It’s good for the teachers to be recognized for the work that they do. It means a lot." 

Brandi Pearl Thompson, 2020 President of the Greater Chattanooga Realtors said, “Teachers do so much for their students all throughout the year, and these hard times have only made it more obvious all that they do. As Realtors, we’re glad to help these teachers get some of the needed materials for their classroom so they can continue all the good things they do for students.”
