Greater Chattanooga Realtors presented a $35,623 check to the locally based Snack Pack Food Ministry during its annual Realtor Day with Snack Packs on Sept. 7.

The check included Greater Chattanooga Realtors’ annual $10,000 donation to Snack Packs and the proceeds from the association’s recent Trivia Night fundraiser.

“We’re thankful for the monetary support of Greater Chattanooga Realtors,” said Realtor Janice Robertson, founder of Snack Pack. “We’re also grateful for everyone who volunteers their time help us pack.”

The trivia event raised an additional $25,623.84 due to the efforts of Greater Chattanooga Realtors’ Community Partnerships Committee and Robertson’ brokerage, Real Estate Partners, which issued a challenge to its agents to support the fundraiser.

Snack Pack helps to feed nearly 2,500 food insecure children in 22 Hamilton County schools every weekend while school is in session. This improves the quality of life locally, says Garrison Parks, 2022 chair of Greater Chattanooga Realtors’ Community Partnership Committee.

“Our Community Partnerships Committee works hard all year to give back. I’m proud to be a Realtor and proud to be a part of a group that serves so many people.”
