United Together: A Day of Giving

Help East Tennessee communities recover from the COVID-19 crisis.

A fundraising campaign for United Way of Greater Knoxville

The past few months have been challenging for everyone. With the COVID-19 crisis affecting countless people, local non-profits stepped up to the plate. These organizations are meeting greater needs with fewer resources, but their commitment to helping the most vulnerable among us has not changed. 

That's why WATE 6 On Your Side is partnering with United Way of Greater Knoxville to host the United Together fundraiser to help communities across East Tennessee recover.

Our local United Ways quickly responded to this crisis by setting up COVID-19 Response Funds so that they can provide much needed financial support to the organizations who are providing meals for children out of school, rent assistance for laid off families, health services to our homeless population, and many other services to ensure that our neighbors do not suffer.

The United Together fundraiser will support the COVID-19 Response Funds at the regional East Tennessee United Way organizations. When you donate, you may designate a specific local United Way when making a contribution.  

Thanks to generous sponsors, many donations are eligible for matching funds. United Way of Greater Knoxville has $60,000 matching funds secured, United Way of Anderson County has $40,000 matching funds secured, United Way of Blount County has $45,000 matching funds secured, and United Way of Sevier County has $25,000 matching funds secured. Donations made to any one of those 4 local United Ways will be matched to that amount! That means your money goes twice as far in helping the community.

Times like these are when we show what we're made of. Let's embody the volunteer spirit and do everything we can to to help our neighbors and keep each other safe.
