 The Isaacs brothers of Morristown were able to give an early Christmas present to ALPS Adult Day Services, thanks to a BP Fueling Communities grant.

 Steve Isaacs, president of Pioneer Petroleum in Morristown and Jerry Isaacs, vice president, arrived at ALPS on Dec. 3 with a large check in hand.

 Not just physically oversized, the check was made out in the amount of $2,000.

 “As a local BP branded marketer and operator of Fastop Markets, Pioneer Petroleum values the strength of our neighborhood and understand the role local businesses play in maintaining our community’s way of life,” Jerry Isaacs said.

 The BP Fueling Communities program provides grants to local organizations that are nominated by BP’s branded marketers to support the communities in which they do business. Fueling Communities gives back to local organizations that support health, education, youth, food and housing to spread charity and goodwill.

 Pioneer Petroleum Company services BP stations throughout East Tennessee.

 “Pioneer Petroleum and Fastop Markets sincerely appreciates all of Morristown and East Tennessee’s support and is committed to giving back to the community that we are all proud to call home,” Steve Isaacs said.

 The ALPS facility, located at 600 N. Daisy St., provides a homelike setting for adults who should not be left alone during the day. The ALPS mission is designed around five core principles – dignity, selfesteem, independence/freedom of choice, a homelike environment and integrity of the family.

 Serving Hamblen, Jefferson, Grainger, Hawkins, Greene, Cocke and surrounding counties since 1987, the ALPS program offers compassionate care, therapeutic activities and professional support. Participants include adults who are memory impaired, have physical problems or are in need of structure and supervision.
