God gives each of us passions and talents and Dallas Bay Missions helps to connect people with avenues to use those skills for God.
Project Thank You was created five years ago by Chattanooga area organizationsto show appreciation from the people of the greater Chattanooga area to the officers of the Chattanooga Police Department.
Please help us support our law enforcement officers who risk their lives to serve us! Through Project Thank You, we will distribute to each sworn officer in CPD a gift bag containing items which officers have told us would be helpful to them on a daily basis, but which are not provided to them by the CPD. In addition, we will prepare a personalized bag for each officer and are soliciting those who would like to write cards and letters to place in the bags. (We will need YOUR help!)
We will deliver the gift bags directly to the sworn officers of the Chattanooga Police Department in August 2020 (on a date still to be determined). There are almost five hundred officers with the CPD.
Here’s how you or your business can help:
– You can donate items from the list below.
– You can donate money. We will take the cash and use it to purchase needed items for the bags. (Please note that police officers CANNOT accept cash gifts.) You may also write a check to Gospel Community Church and your gift is tax-deductible.
– You can donate gift cards from your business or for other local businesses. Fast-food gift and store cards are especially coveted by the patrol officers, as they often do not get a chance to sit down for a meal while they are working. In $10 denominations.
– You can write encouraging cards or notes to be distributed to the officers in the gift bags. We will provide the names of officers to those who wish to participate in this facet of the project.
You may drop off donations at Dallas Bay Church, Mondays through Thursdays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m at the black and blue barrel outside of the main entrance door — or Sunday mornings inside the LEC back entrance. This barrel will be inside the door near the Coke machine.
Checks may be made out to “Gospel Community Church” for “Project Thank You” and may be mailed to the church at 1640 Joiner Road, Chattanooga, TN 37421.
THE DEADLINE FOR DONATIONS IS JULY 30, 2020! It should be noted that neither the Police Department nor any of its officers are involved in this solicitation, and it comes solely and directly from the community sponsors.There will also be a drop-off day at Oakwood Baptist Church, 4501 Bonny Oaks Drive, on July 28, 2020. If you have questions, please email Aaron Goccia at AGoccia@dallasbaychurch.com or call the church office at (423) 842-9299.
