Non profit wants teens to: "Stop killing & start living"
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -
Organizers with Touch My Life Ministries want people to stop killing and start living.
“We are trying to give them an alternative to a better lifestyle. To let them know that we care,” said Ross.
Fred Ross is the Vice President of the nonprofit. Ross says the youth on this basketball court get the message.
“We want them to see that there is fun activities you can have and have structure,” said Ross.
Chattanooga’s youth met at Booker T. Washington Park for flag football and 5 on 5 basketball. They also listened to motivational speakers.
“We want them to know that there is an organization that is serious about touching their life. I want them to look back and say: "Hey that made a difference, because I realized someone cared about what i was doing,” said Ross.
Touch My Life Ministries is working to put more events on their calendar.
They want more of Chattanooga’s youth to get involved.
“Each one of us has a desire to belong to something, to be loved by someone. so we believe that should be provided in a positive way,” said Ross.
