A police escorted caravan took to the streets of Chattanooga Friday delivering holiday cheer to Partnership for Families, Children, and Adults.
For their 19th year, Unum employees adopted families and individuals across multiple Partnership programs including the Victim Support Services, Family Focused Solutions, Deaf Services, and Elder services.
“When Unum first started participating, they had a few mini vans and a station wagon that they would fill up, said Partnership’s CEO Pam Ladd. “Nineteen years later, they’ve filled two moving trucks with gifts for our clients and it is quite amazing.”
Unum coordinated efforts with the Chattanooga Police Department, CARTA, and Armstrong Relocation Services to allow for storing and moving gifts for 444 people to various locations around Chattanooga.
This year, many companies and individuals have adopted more than 600 clients for Partnership’s annual drive and the needs continue to grow. Wish lists typically include necessities like warm clothing, toilet paper, and canned food- but the many donors who participate go above and beyond to ensure the family or elder they are helping gets an extra special holiday surprise.
