CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)-- Our radio partners at US101 were busy Friday collecting for the Forgotten Child Fund for this Christmas season.

This same fundraiser has been going on here in the city for the past 20 years.

Every year they are able to help about 4000 children in need.

Many Eyewitness News viewers drove by to drop off donations for area families.

One resident who pulled up, says she is very thankful for her chance to give this year.

"I've been out of work for a year and a half now I have a good job. Can't stand children to not have a good Christmas," says the Good Samaritan.

County and city officials  have been involved with the Forgotten Child Fundraiser for decades.
