How You Can Help
Volunteers make United Ways’ tax assistance and financial education programs possible. We need your help, even if you don’t have an accounting background. Volunteer to help.
You can unite to fight poverty by: Sharing Poverty Simulation information within your agency, organization or church; attending a simulation and bringing a friend or co-worker, investing resources in United Way to help people achieve their human potential; volunteering with local programs that work to address the needs associated with poverty in Knox County.
Contact Us for future Poverty Simulation dates and specific details about hosting a simulation within your agency, organization or church. This is a great team building opportunity (a group of at least 50 participants in needed in order to conduct an effective simulation).
