Letter from
Mr. Phil
I  just got back from the National Philanthropy
   Day luncheon held at the Chattanooga
Convention Center. The Philanthropy Day lun-
cheon is my favorite event of the year because
it celebrates the spirit of giving, caring and
responding to the needs of our fellow citizens.
At the luncheon, non-profit organizations like
ours are given the opportunity to honor an
individual or business that has made signifi-
cant contributions to that organization over
the past year. There were about 18 organi-
zations that honored an individual or busi-
ness but only the Children’s Home/Chambliss
Shelter had so many honorees that they could      vices that we provide to our children and their         A special thanks to all our friends who

friends”. We chose to honor seven individuals     our list down to seven special friends for the     Chambliss Shelter. We could not care for the

was lucky to have the help of many great volunteers from Virginia

    Help us decorate our christmas tree!
     A    very generous friend of CH/CS has spent his time hand
          painting dozens of Christmas ornaments. They are glass balls
     with winter scenes, angels, reindeer, and other holiday symbols.
     The Christmas trees inside of the Children’s Home really need
     some more ornaments, and the donor of the ornaments would
     like them to be used to raise money. This is where you can help
     out! Send us a donation in the enclosed envelope of $100 or more,
     and we will put your name (or the name of a person in whose
     honor or memory the gift is made) on an ornament and hang it on
     our tree. Come by and see your name hanging in our hallway or
     just know that your gift will be used to make the holidays brighter
     for our little ones!

Ragnar Relay
O   ne hundred and fifty running teams took part in the inaugural
    Ragnar Relay event in Chattanooga on November 5th. This 12
person relay started in Coolidge Park on Friday and ended in Nashville
on Saturday, running through the night. One of these teams chose
to run for the benefit of our children, and was able to donate over
$1,300 to CH/CS! Not only did they spend the months and weeks
leading up to event training, but they also spent that time asking for
donations to help at-risk children. With one of their members injured,
they completed the race with only 11 runners in 32 hours! Great job!

N    ow in its eleventh year, the tioga pipe Supply golf outing, broke its
     own record for both gross and net proceeds at its October golf event.
The employees of Tioga and the golfers were amazed to hear that they had
grossed over $20,000! Both the extended early Childhood education and
Child Care Program at the Children’s Home and the Residential Program at
the Chambliss Shelter will benefit from the $18,000 donation produced by
this event. We are so grateful for our friends at Tioga Pipe Supply for all of
their hard work on this event, year after year.

O    ur children not only received treats of candy for Halloween, but were also treated to a field trip to TVA and a play by Bright School First Graders!
     It was a busy day at CH/CS, full of children (and some adults) in cute costumes, the loading and unloading of buses, and small “trick or treat”s
heard all over. The four-year-olds traveled to TVA and walked around the third floor of the Lookout Place building packed with more than 150 TVA
employees. After gathering an enormous amount of candy, the children were given a pizza party, served by our wonderful TVA hostesses. At the
same time, our three-year-olds watched three Bright School classes perform “It’s a Jungle Out There”, a play about the importance of good friends.
The Bright School students came in adorable animal costumes to entertain our little ones with their stories and songs. Later in the day, the younger
children were able to trick or treat around the CH/CS campus to partake in the not-so-spooky fun! It was a fun, full day, and we thank all of those
who helped make it so special for our children!

TVA’s Day of Caring
S   eptember is a month that all of us at CH/CS look forward
    to. It’s the time when several volunteer groups come
out and spend hours and hours of their free time working
on our buildings and grounds. The largest of these groups
comes from TVA on their annual Day of Caring. Bringing
more than 75 employees who worked on dozens of projects,
the TVA volunteers tackled tasks from the highly difficult
to very messy. Painting, carpentry, cleaning, pruning
trees, hauling limbs, welding, shampooing carpets pouring
concrete….you name it; they did it. And, we can’t thank
them enough for their generous spirits and friendly smiles!
TVA employees are very special friends to this agency and                    Brandi Duggan, Angela

National Philanthropy Day
T   he National Philanthropy Day, organized by the local chapter of the Association of
    Fundraising Professionals, is held to honor local philanthropists for their generous gifts
to the community. This year, we were proud to honor: John Brooks, chambliss, Bahner,
& Stophel, chattanooga tennis Foundation, chattem, Frank Fowler, tioga pipe
Supply, and tVA Nuclear. They have all made significant contributions to CH/CS, and we
owe them all many, many thanks! In addition to our honorees, the luncheon recognized four
other winners in three categories. It was great that miguel morales of carrabba’s italian
Grill was honored for his commitment to the community. Miguel has been a generous
supporter not only of CH/CS, but more than 60 other local charities. Thanks to all of you for
making Chattanooga a better place!

                                run for cH/cS in the Scenic city Half marathon!
    The Chattanooga Track Club is planning its Scenic City Half Marathon, 5k, & Charity Challenge to be held on February 26, 2011, and it’s time
    to start signing up again! Runners or walkers in this race are given the option of charities to which a portion of their registration fee will be
    given. Please tell all your friends to pick the Children’s Home/Chambliss Shelter! Because of some wonderful individuals who have raised
    funds over and above their registration, we have been close to being the top charity every year. With your help we could do it in 2011! Come
    on, register and raise funds to support our agency! Visit to register or for more information.
