Leitner, Williams, Dooley & Napolitan, PLLC law firm announces that they have teamed up with the local Salvation Army chapter to sponsor the Corporate Angel Tree Program this season. Staff and attorneys sponsored angels throughout the Chattanooga area.

Chattanooga Member James F. Exum said “We have sponsored this program in our office the last several years and it is always amazing to see how generous our attorneys and staff are this time of year.”

The Salvation Army of Greater Chattanooga offers holiday assistance to provide necessities and joy to many children, seniors and families in Hamilton, Bradley and Marion counties in Tennessee and Catoosa, Dade and Walker counties in Georgia, officials said. 

Salvation Army’s Director of Volunteer Services and Special Events Alissa Best said in an email today that “The Salvation Army still has 100 senior angels that are in need of adoption."
