Chattanooga’s Salvation Army to host Super Bowl party

Event to be held for local homeless and impoverished community

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) — Chattanooga’s Salvation Army is set to throw a super party for the Super Bowl as part of its Beyond Love Campaign.

From 6 to 10 p.m. on Sunday, February 13, the local chapter will host a viewing party of the big game between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals for those in the area who are enduring homelessness and/or poverty.

Back Road Boys Barbecue will donate decorations and food, including barbecue sandwiches, baked beans, coleslaw, iced tea and more.

“Throughout the year, people need to know that they’re important and they’re loved,” said Salvation Army Major Mark Smith. “Doing simple acts of kindness, just simple things like this [like] throwing a TV up and having a party and some food for people — these are meaningful times and it makes people feel important and loved. That’s what we’re trying to do at The Salvation Army.”

The Salvation Army’s Love Beyond campaign invites all who are wishing to join the local chapter to come down and help provide care and assistance to those who need it.
