Sponsorship Levels and Benefits

The Maclellan Shelter for Families, is located onsite at the Community Kitchen on 11th Street in Chattanooga, features 13 units with 64 beds and is the first of its kind in Chattanooga, as it provides a stable environment for an intact family to remain together as they search for permanent housing solutions. Since its opening in December 2014, more than 200 families, comprised of approximately 600 men, women, and children, have benefited from the programs including meals, case management, and job training provided by the Maclellan Shelter for Families.

First Tennessee will be our presenting sponsor again this year! We do hope you’ll join us as a sponsor as well. This is a Thanksgiving tradition for many families.

Involve your family and/or staff in one of the most pressing issues in the Chattanooga community: HOMELESSNESS. You have a wonderful opportunity to make a difference by investing in this community effort while gaining valuable business exposure as more than 4,000 people participate in the Grateful Gobbler annually. Our goal is to raise $200,000 for the shelter.

Please see the listing below of sponsorship levels and benefit packages. We would be honored to have your family or business participate and should you choose to do so, please download the sponsorship packet or register as a sponsor online by using the buttons to the right.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration in this wonderful endeavor.
