GIVE HOPE. CHANGE LIVES.
UNITED WAY IS WORKING TO ADVANCE THE COMMON GOOD by focusing on the root causes of our community’s problems. We want to support the building blocks for a good life – a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.
United Way of Blount County’s 2023 Most Generous Workplaces is determined by a company’s philanthropic contributions to United Way during the previous fiscal year. Combined, the top 50 organizations and their employees generously invested to help our local community through United Way of Blount County-supported programs in the areas of health, education and self-sufficiency.
