Unum Employees Rolling Out Red Carpet For Big Brothers Big Sisters This Friday
Thursday, November 2, 2017
To kick off this year’s Unum’s Beyond School Walls 2017/2018 partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Chattanooga, Unum ‘Bigs’ will cheer and welcome this year’s ‘Littles’ as they walk the red carpet into Unum’s campus this Friday from 9:45-10:45 a.m. During this special welcome, Bigs will get reacquainted with their Littles (and meet new Littles) and catch up on the last school year.
The Beyond School Walls program seeks to pair Littles with Bigs at local employers so they can see and experience what it’s like to work in the community.
Unum is one of three community partners involved in Beyond School Walls and will serve nearly 30 students through the Unum program in the 2017/2018 school year. During visits to Unum, Littles will play games, learn about careers and build relationships with their Bigs one-on-one.
“The Atrium buzzes with excitement each week when the Littles are reunited with their Bigs,” said Emily Barrow, program manager at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Chattanooga. “Unum employees are invested in making a difference for children in the community, and programs like Beyond School Walls change lives at a time when even the smallest choice can alter the course of a student’s future.”
