WE FIGHT FOR LOW-INCOME SENIORS
There is much work to be done in Knoxville to improve the lives of low-income seniors. The United Way of Greater Knoxville is proud to work with local agencies and programs designed to provide care for those in need.
What does United Way do to help with seniors in need?
We help people by raising funds and supporting programs that provide solutions here in Knoxville. Those programs include the Knoxville-Knox County Community Action Committee, Catholic Charities of East Tennessee, Inc., Senior Citizens Home Assistance Service, Inc. and the Wesley House. Although these 501(C)3 organizations also raise funds individually, the United Way is responsible for providing funding, which represents a significant portion of their operational budgets, allowing them to better serve those in our community in need of help.
How do I know that my donation will help seniors in Knoxville?
United Way of Greater Knoxville raises money to meet the needs of our community. The money that is raised here, stays here, in Knoxville.
How can I help?
If you would like to assist in providing crucial care for seniors in our community and further the cause of the United Way, you can either DONATE or VOLUNTEER. Any donation of any size is helpful, and even the smallest donations add up. And if you’re more interested in providing your time, the United Way is always in need of caring individuals to help us fulfill our mission.
