Hamilton Place kicked off “Malls & Retailers Unite Against Bullying” Wednesday in association with National Bullying Prevention Month and sponsored by Captain McFinn and Friends. The purpose of the campaign is to encourage students to take an active stand against bullying behavior.    

The mall also launched the “Handprints of Friendship” challenge to all K – 2 teachers in Hamilton County to create posters featuring student hand prints with positive messaging that will be on display in the mall through October   The school with the most participation will be awarded a S.H.A.R.K. Patrol Kit, a bully prevention program to educate K-2 students on how to recognize bullying, and protect themselves and others against it. 

 “Hamilton Place is truly a social hub, and we want to utilize this to raise awareness of this important issue and put an end to bullying”, said Dan Wolfe, general manager for Hamilton Place.   

Wolfe invites the public to pick up and sign an “Anti-Bullying Pledge” throughout the month by visiting the Tourist Information Center, located on the upper level of the mall, near Sears.

The event was attended by Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke, Hamilton County Superintendent Rick Smith, School Board member Donna Horn, and Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Hammond.
