The Tennessean has partnered with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee to help raise funds for the families of the American service members and others gunned down in Chattanooga on Thursday, July 16. Through the To Chattanooga with Love Fund, money will be raised to support the victims' families as they rebuild their lives.
Four Marines and a U.S. Navy petty officer were killed in Chattanooga in what federal authorities are investigating as a possible act of terrorism. In addition to the four Marines and sailor, two others were wounded, including another Marine and a Chattanooga police officer.
In response to the alleged hate crime and massacre that occurred in Charleston, South Carolina, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee is activating its Nashville Unites Fund to support the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church, which has a deep history of perseverance in the face of racial hostility.
Nashville Unites is an effort to assure Nashville is prepared to respond to some of the racial, socio-economic and neighborhood issues that have affected other cities recently, like Charleston, by emphasizing civic responsibility, dialogue and participation.
Contributions will benefit the Emanuel AME Church and its congregational family as they recover.
