Let's Can Hunger
Hunger is an issue around the world, even in Hamilton County, TN. The Campbell’s Soup’s Let’s Can Hunger grant funding empowers our team to alleviate hunger on both immediate and long-term levels. By fulfilling our commitment to raise 5,000 pounds of food/$5,000, we will help combat immediate hunger needs in our area. Through our partnership with The Samaritan Center, we will work through education and interactive methods to help individuals and families break free from the hunger cycle.

Women at the Well
Located in Athens, TN, this 18 month residential program helps women who struggle with life-controlling addictions recover and productively reintegrate in their community. We are assembling a consultative team of students, professors, and professionals to work with WATW to increase the effectiveness of their marketing and recruiting efforts, broaden their donor base, and strengthen retention. Initial funding for this project is provided by a Sam’s Step Up for Small Business grant and a Walmart Women’s Economic Empowerment grant.
