Knoxville’s Change Center was given a $10,000 donation by The Zaevion Dobson Memorial Foundation Sunday afternoon.

First conceived in 2016, following the deaths of Zaevion Dobson, and his cousin, Jajuan Latham, the Change Center works to help take at-risk youth off the streets. The partnership facility provides a location for constructive activities, including skating, a working DJ booth, job training opportunities, and more.

Sunday’s $10,000 donation was made in memory of Zaevion Dobson, as well as in honor of Zak Dobson.
