Local organizations are coming together to support the Chattanooga Police Department.

Harvest Bible Chapel Chattanooga, WMBW/Moody Radio Southeast, and Pierce Law Firm are teaming together to ask for donations. 

Organizers say it all comes after an increase in shootings in April.  The Chattanooga Police Department responded with more officers on the streets, meaning longer hours and more work for the officers, who often are so busy they cannot stop for meals.

The goal of the donation drive  is to provide a show of appreciation through supplies of practical and useful non-monetary resources for every officer.

The drop-off day is Thursday, June 23, from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Harvest Bible Chapel Chattanooga which is located off Gunbarrel Road near Hamilton Place Mall, at 1640 Joiner Road.     

Donations may also be dropped off at Pierce Law Firm, 4513 Hixson Pike, Suite 109, any weekday through Thursday, June 30, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.
