BCCX Raises Over $1,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Chattanooga
CHATTANOOGA – Recognizing the importance of mentors in the lives of children in the east Tennessee area, Bledsoe County Correctional Complex (BCCX) held a fundraiser raising $1,119.43. BCCX staff organized a doughnut sale for the offenders of the institution as well as themselves. The Chattanooga Probation and Parole Office also made donations to go towards the charity event. The money was raised as a part of the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Chattanooga’s annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake Bowling event.
“Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Chattanooga greatly appreciate the Tennessee Department of Correction’s support and participation in our recent fundraiser, Bowl for Kids’ Sake,” said Mark Hixson, Partnership Development Director for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Chattanooga. “Their efforts help us to support our mission of providing children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-on-one relationship that change their lives for the better.”
“I am very grateful to all BCCX staff that aided in the raising of the funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Chattanooga,” said BCCX Warden Eric Qualls. “We pride ourselves on reaching out and helping our communities whenever possible.”
