Program funding sought

Donations are still needed to help fund local presentations of Rachel’s Challenge — an inspiring true story based on the life and writings of Rachel Scott, the first victim of the Columbine school shooting in 1999 in Colorado.
Rachel’s Challenge will be presented at Union City and Obion County schools and as a community event Nov. 6-7.
The program exists to equip and inspire individuals to replace acts of violence, bullying and negativity with acts of respect, kindness and compassion.
Chastity Homra, Coordinated School Health director for the Obion County School System, and Kristen Miles, school health coordinator for the Union City School System, are working together to arrange the programs for local schools with the support of the school systems and local businesses.
Donations are being sought to help fund the local presentations. Any businesses, organizations or individuals interested in sponsoring the program are asked to contact Ms. Homra at 885-7171 or Mrs. Miles at 885-1632, Ext. 511.
Ms. Homra said Tuesday that donations are still needed to help fund the event.
After the school programs, Rachel’s Challenge will be presented as a communitywide event Nov. 7 at 6 p.m. at Second Baptist Church on Everett Boulevard in Union City. The public is invited.
