We rely on corporate sponsors to make Gratefull happen, and to support our work throughout the rest of the year.
We believe that to build a city that is an honest reflection of its residents, everyone should be invited to the table.
Gratefull is Causeway's annual city-wide Thanksgiving potluck. Every year on the Monday before Thanksgiving, we shut down a block on MLK Boulevard for Chattanoogans to come together and share a meal in the middle of Martin Luther King Boulevard at one long table, to remove barriers and bring people together from across Chattanooga.
The first year, 700 people showed up. Since then, Gratefull has continued to grow in numbers, and in heart. This year over 1,600 people joined us, with the vast majority making a clear effort to introduce themselves to someone they would not otherwise have a chance to meet. 96% of the people who took our event survey reported that they met someone new.
