The Great Blanket Banquet

“I want to be very sincere in my formation of this event,” stated Erwin M. Davis, II, founder and CEO of EDI. “Our goal is to show just how much Chattanooga cares about the homeless in our community and that we want them to succeed. For when they succeed, we all succeed. We need to get to know them, talk to them, and find out who they are and how they got here. There is always a solution to a problem, and I want to work with the community to spearhead a movement that is the answer to this problem. We are extending our hand to those in our Chattanooga family who are in need by offering a blanket, a conversation, and most valuable of all, a friend. The collection is not limited to just blankets. We will have secondary gifts to offer to the recipients, such as jackets, sleeping bags, socks. So, anything you have that’s in good or great condition would be an excellent gift for someone in need.”
