Toys for Tots Gives Gifts Out to Family Forward Families

Chattanooga, TN (WDEF): Christmas is coming early for some Family Forward families thanks to Santa and Toys for Tots.

The city of Chattanooga funds the Family Forward initiative, previously called ‘Baby University’.

Family Forward focuses on preparing children and families for lifelong success.

Family Forward with Toys for Tots will be giving out gifts to 150 families in their program at the Southside Community Center.

Patricia Chastain, Case Manager with Family Forward  says, “These are the only gift that they get and it’s so exciting for the whole family to see. Even the parents get gifts and the dads get gifts. So, they are very appreciative of all the love and the work that we put.”

Family Forward says they have even given out bicycles and skateboards today.

They want to thank the marines at Toys for Tots for their generous contributions to these families.
