Reciprocity Road, an alliance of 10 distributors located across the U.S. and Canada that collectively generate approximately $230 million in promotional products spending, has named Chattanooga’s Forrest Spence Fund as the recipient of its 2021 second-quarter grant. The organization was nominated by Melissa Nanney, client success specialist of Flywheel, a distributor member of Reciprocity Road.

The mission of the Forrest Spence Fund is to assist with the non-medical needs of critical or chronically ill children and their families throughout the Mid-South. Since 2015, the fund has helped to provide resources for 73,341 individual requirements in this area, which also includes more than 20,000 acts of institutional support and 800 acts of benevolence, and awarding more than 200 grants to continue its mission.

Nanney says, “The Forrest Spence Fund reached out to Flywheel in need of branded coolers last year for their annual ‘No Show Ball’ in Chattanooga. We were compelled by their mission and decided to donate the coolers for their event to help support their mission.”

The grant will go directly to assist families in the greater Chattanooga area with their non-medical needs.

Perry Werle, executive director of Reciprocity Road, says, “We are proud that this brings Reciprocity Road distributor local nonprofit grant contributions to $7,000. Stay tuned for information on our next BrandGood grant.”
