This year’s campaign theme is “In a World Divided, LIVE UNITED”. This theme highlights that diversity, includion, and community give value to every human being, no matter our differenced. By promoting the health, education, and financial stability of all Knox County residents, we find ways that we can all agree to unite.
We are excited to share the stories that we have prepared as a way to promote our work at United Way and educate our community about United Way of Knox County.
We've been collecting personal stories for a while now, here we share personal stories from United Way Program Participants, Providers and Volunteers, and describe United Way coordinated programs. We will continue to add to the collection, so continue to check back for more of these impactful stories.
