BASF Chattanooga recently donated more than $14,000 to several area organizations as part of Giving Tuesday.

The recipients included the Chattanooga Fire Department, the Chattanooga Police Department, the Chattanooga Zoo, the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Rescue Service, the Dallas Bay Volunteer Fire Department, Brainerd High School’s STEM program, the Humane Educational Society, McKamey Animal Center, the NAACP, Northside Neighborhood House, the Salvation Army’s Chattanooga area command and the United Way.

In addition, BASF’s Chattanooga employees recently donated hundreds of toys to Toys for Tots, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve program that provides gifts to children and families throughout the community. BASF has provided holiday toys and meals to Chattanooga-area families in need for more than three decades.
