Faculty, staff and students generously contributed enough food items to pack three electric trucks for WRCB’s Share Your Christmas, held annually to benefit the Chattanooga Area Food Bank.  Facilities “elves” packed up the food and delivered it with assistance from athletics personnel to the First Tennessee Pavilion.

“It was the first year our campus contributed to Share Your Christmas,” said Valerah Hodges, Vice Chair of the Employee Relations Committee (ERC).  “Despite not having a raise in several years, the UTC faculty and staff did a wonderful job reaching out to those in need.  We are also very grateful for student donations.”

UTC joined numerous other businesses and individuals to assist the Chattanooga Area Food Bank with more than 100,000 pounds of food collected in Chattanooga, Dalton and Cleveland.

For those who missed the campus food drive, donations of non-perishable food items may be made through December 31st at area Bi-lo, Food Lion and Publix stores.
