Ridgedale Baptist Youth Members Help Scenic City ARK Feed Chattanooga’s Homeless

CHATTANOOGA,TN, (WDEF)-After a busy holiday season Scenic City Ark returned to downtown Chattanooga to feed 150 members of the homeless community.

Organizers say any donations are helpful as their numbers are rising.

Alan Cantrell, Scenic City ARK,"Heavy jackets, sweats, hoodies, blankets, sleeping bags, tents, anything that can help, I can’t imagine being out in 10 degree weather having to stay the night."

Cantrell says he is grateful for local Churches who have come forward offering money and also helping on the ground to feed Chattanooga’s homeless.

Youth members and youth leaders at Ridgedale Baptist say they have a calling to help especially at this time of year with so many in need.

"Giving pizzas and drinks and food and clothing out to homeless people in need in the community its important to us" added high schooler Andrew Plumlee.

"Especially my students they gain so much experience here they see ways they can help out their city especially so we always need more churches more youth groups," says Pastor Ryan McBride

Scenic City ARK estimate they have given out 7000 hot meals in 2014 and say they are actively for more church or youth groups to help out.
