This year, fund organizers say its resources are spread thin due to a number of tragedies, including the Woodmore Elementary bus accident, fires in Gatlinburg and tornadoes. Please consider donating to this cause if you are able. Toys, gloves and hats for all ages are still needed. Find out more about how you can help make Christmas special for people in our community at the Forgotten Child Fund's website. Donations can be dropped off at Chattanooga Fire or Hamilton County EMS locations.
The Forgotten Child Fund is operated and supported by volunteers with many emergency response agencies, including the Chattanooga Fire Department, Chattanooga-Hamilton County Rescue, Chattanooga Police Department, Hamilton County Emergency Services, Hamilton County Sheriff's Department, Red Bank Fire Department, Signal Mountain Fire Department and several volunteer fire departments.
