Stuff the Bus at Live United Day at the Chattanooga Market

The point of Lookout Mountain facing downtown and the Chattanooga Market this morning was concealed by a low lying clouds.  But the clouds soon moved to a bright sunny day at the Market.

Today was United Way of Chattanooga Live United day!  I am very humbled that a Twitter conversation last year about merging the United Way's annual Stuff the Bus drive and the Hamilton County PTA Council's Teacher Supply Depot turned into reality this year. I am the president-elect of the Council.

It was very cool to see fliers and posters about Stuff the Bus that had both the Hamilton County PTA Council logo and the United Way logo on them.  All of the school supplies donated to Stuff the Bus will go to the Teacher Supply Depot. The Depot is jointly operated by both the County PTA Council and the County Deparment of Education.

 The County PTA Council had a display inside the Market. I thought this was great public relations for the Council to be a part of the United Way booths.
