For the eighth straight year, EMJ hosted a Christmas party for the clients and employees of the Chattanooga Community Kitchen .
The kitchen offers a variety of services to its clients. Through all of the assistance offered, it seeks to satisfy the spiritual and physical hunger of people in Chattanooga. There are no fees or requirements for receiving the Kitchen’s services; instead, they are offered out of love and compassion.
EMJ partners with the Kitchen because it allows employees to support a great cause through service. This year EMJ employees raffled gift baskets to raise money to cover the cost.
On the day of the event, employees took shifts decorating the Kitchen, cooking and serving meals, and making phone calls to ask for donations for the organization. The team prepared and served more than 750 meals, which set a new record.
The Community Kitchen relies on volunteer support to accomplish its mission. Groups and individual volunteers are needed year-round. You may sign up to volunteer here, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
