March

We Hosted TWO lunch & Learns on March 27th & 28th.  One in Anderson county at the Oak Ridge Chamber building and

one in Blount county at the Blount Chamber Building.

Both Lunch and learns had at least ten attendees! What a great turnout!

Special Thank you to McAlister’s in Maryville and Fire & Salt in Oak Ridge for providing lunch for our attendees!

April

April was National Child Abuse Prevention Month.

We teamed up with a local coffee shop in Anderson County, Calamity’s Coffee to disburse Coffee sleeves to raise awareness!

They helped us distribute 1200 sleeves!

Pictured below is our Executive Director Kesha showing off her coffee with our awareness sleeve.

Thank you so much to our friends over at Calamity’s Coffee!

In April we also Partnered with the Family Justice Center of Anderson County to host an Ice Cream Social in Jackson Square!

It was a huge Success! Despite the dreary Weather we were able to distribute 38 Backpacks to the community and the Pilot Club was able to Distribute 40 Helmets!

We had a visit from  ORFD with the Firetruck and ORPD helped to do the fittings for all the helmets distributed!

Thank you to everyone to helped and showed up for the event!

We thank you ALL. Every one of you have made a difference!
