Deep Creek Climbing Routes March 2012

Recipient: Michael Wurzel

Chattanooga is a well known climbing mecca. New and old climbing areas draw locals and road trippers alike to enjoy the high quality, southern sandstone Chattanooga has to offer. The Unfoundation funded motivated individuals to go climb, develop, and bolt new routes at Deep Creek and other legitimate areas. They put up nearly 30 new trad routes and sport climbs, improving and promoting Chattanooga as an innovative outdoor city.

Youth Basketball Uniforms February 2012

Receipant: Chattanooga Elite Basketball

The Chattanooga Elite Basketball league was the recipient of our February grant. Kathleen Hunt, a volunteer, applied for a grant to cover a set of 100 uniforms for their players. Wee granted Chattanooga Elite Basketball $1,700 for the purchase of uniforms, and they came out great. Reversable, and reusable for seasons, these Jerseys were high quality.  The UNFoundation felt that crisp uniforms would make youth feel like they are a part of a team; a part of something worth working for.  Sometimes the only after-school activity available, this program leverages the youth’s excitement about basketball to promote teamwork, leadership, and academic skills.

Westside Community Garden January 2012

Recipient: Tonya Rooks

Our first grant was to Tonya Rooks with the College Hill Courts Residency Council, headed by Tonya Rooks.  The UNfoundation granted towards the implementation of a community garden that now belongs to the West Side residents. The graden was created to meet the need created by the ever increasing ‘food desert’ scenario in the Westside. Raised beds were built to grow fresh produce to be consumed by the residents of the neighborhood.  As a first project, we were really thrilled, and this quality set the tone for what was to come from The UnFoundation.
