Salvation Army Takes Low-Income Students Back-To-School Shopping At Chattanooga Area Wal-Mart

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

The Salvation Army and Wal-Mart are joining together to help supply kids with the necessary tools to succeed in the upcoming school year by providing a back-to-school shopping spree on Wednesday at the Wal-Mart located on Gunbarrel Road beginning at 8:30 a.m.  Local students in grades K-12 will be accompanied by volunteer chaperones and go shopping to stock up on clothes, school supplies and any other necessities for the 2014 school year thanks to a local grant from area Wal-Mart stores.  

"The Salvation Army has partnered with Wal-Mart for many years to care for the needs of our community, particularly at times of disaster and at Christmas," states Major Algerome Newsome, Salvation Army area commander.

  "We are grateful once again with this partnership; this time it will assist us with preparing children for school."

The Salvation Army still needs volunteers to help with this shopping spree and to help with other back-to-school opportunities.  To volunteer or donate or for more information, please call Kimberly George at 423-756-1023.

Do Something To Protect Our Children

It is unconscionable in this day and age that these children had to exist in such deplorable conditions and that an innocent baby suffered and died alone in a locked car.  Yes, there is blame and accountability considering this family had child neglect charges filed a few years ago (that were apparently dropped and expunged) and a large part of the responsibility should ...
