KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — United Way of Greater Knoxville is calling on the community to make a big impact this Giving Tuesday, which falls December 3rd.
United Way has gathered more than 100 local non-profit organizations to participate in a community-wide day of giving, called the Big Give Knox. This collaborative effort is meant to drive engagement, awareness and funds for the non-profit community as a whole.
United Way’s Brewton Couch and Big Brothers Big Sisters’ Brent Waugh visited WATE to discuss the Big Give Knox and how non-profits and community members alike can get involved and give back to the agencies that serve Knoxville.
People around Knox County are encouraged to visit www.biggiveknox.org on December 3 and donate to agencies and programs that make our community a better place for all. The Big Give Knox official fundraising day is December 3rd, but donations are now open.
The Big Give Knox is open to any non-profit and is free to participate. Welcoming all non-profits, including agencies that are not United Way partners, ensures that no one is left behind and that people all across Knox County can be impacted in a positive way.
United Way will also host the Big Give Knox Community Luncheon and Community Happy Hour coinciding with The Big Give event on December 3rd.
The Big Give Knox Community Luncheon will be held from noon to 1 p.m. at Bearden Banquet Hall, 5806 Kingston Pike. The cost is $10.
The Big Give Knox Community Happy Hour will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Elkmont Exchange Brewery & Eating House, 745 N. Broadway. For every pint sold, $1 will be given to the United Way.
