UTC Students Join Forces to Help Raise Money for Autistic Boy
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – Moccasin Bend Company is a brand new local business, that’s now teaming up with UTC’s Pi Kappa Alpha Chapter to raise $25,000 for one special 5-year-old, Noah Phillips, who was diagnosed with Autism at the age of three.
“I mean Noah’s a great kid,” said Joshua Carlile, founder of the company, “and I know this is a great cause, and we are all so happy to be able to help this family.”
UTC Pike, as well as the Moccasin Bend Company are both raising the money for Pike’s Peak Week, which is an annual philanthropic event geared towards helping those in need.
Hundreds of people came out to support and give donations at Saturday’s event, which organizers say has already helped them reach half of their goal. “We’re just so grateful to be blessed with people that care and want to help other people. So you know, thank you so much everyone,” said Noah’s father Skyler Phillips.”
