“It was great to see our mentors and mentees enjoy the time with each other at the Chattanooga Zoo,” said Elizabeth Tallman, United Way of Greater Chattanooga’s Education Director. “Our goal is to continue to work with our great partners in the community to guarantee that every child that is in need of a mentor has one.”
During the event, children had the chance to spend valuable time with their mentors by petting and meeting new animals, eating pizza, and interacting with other program participants throughout the evening. Also, several adults signed up to become a mentor through the Chattanooga Mentoring Collective. For more information visit www.mentorchatt.org
We are thankful for volunteers and businesses who donated to make this event successful.
A very special thank you to the Chattanooga Zoo, Chattanooga Youth and Family Development, Speedway, and Lil Caesar’s pizza (Dodson). We look forward to next year’s Chattanooga Mentoring Collective celebration.
