KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – A local nonprofit is helping out the people of East Tennessee one initiative at a time.

Since 2014, the Knoxville Dream Center has aimed to lighten the load and create a brighter future for people in the community. While their initial purpose was to provide food to people experiencing homelessness, they have evolved to help out that population and many others. A few of the other initiatives that the Knoxville Dream Center offers include the following:

  • Make A Teacher Smile – program that gives various resources to teachers and students in Title-One Schools
  • KDC Book Mobile – effort to deliver free books to children in Knox County Title-One Schools
  • Knox Dream Eats – serves as a thrift store for people in need of clothes
