Priddy Chimney Solutions Supports Local Students Through "Fill the Chimney" Effort

Earlier this month, students at River Hill High School warmed hearts faster than a cozy fire on a cold winter’s night. Amidst the buzz of the highly anticipated Staff V. Staff Basketball game, a different kind of excitement was building – one that centered around giving back to the community in a meaningful way.

Priddy Chimney Solutions placed a chimney in the lobby of the school and challenged the students to “Fill the Chimney” with books and supplies for students at Talbott Springs Elementary. If students completed the challenge, our team would donate $500 to their fundraiser.

The response from the River Hill High School community was nothing short of spectacular. Students and staff alike embraced the challenge with open hearts, filling the chimney not just once, but multiple times over, with donations pouring in to create a towering testament to their generosity.

This remarkable event was made possible by the collaboration of many, including the Stephanie McClellan Team of Northrop RealtyStretch Zone ClarksvilleChick-fil-A ClarksvilleLedo’s Pizza, and VarsityGraphics, who all further supported the Staff V. Staff Basketball game and fundraising efforts. 

As we reflect on the overwhelming success of this campaign, we’re reminded of the power of community and the impact of collective effort. A heartfelt thank you goes out to everyone who planned, participated, and donated, proving once again that when we come together for a common cause, the results can be truly magical.

At Priddy Chimney Solutions, we’re not just about keeping your hearths warm; we’re also committed to igniting sparks of generosity and community spirit. We’re honored to have been a part of this incredible event and to help make a difference in the lives of local students.
