United Way of East TN Highlands, in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank’s mobile summer feeding program, is working to bring books and meals. For some children being in school is their only source of food and learning, so what happens during summer break? Many children go without 3 meals a day. We are partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank to change that! We’ll be delivering 5 day meal boxes and books to our most vulnerable neighborhoods every week in the months of June and July.
How can you help?
Donate Books – Stuff the Bus with Books! We are collecting book donations in April and May. If you’re with a company, pick a day and we’ll bring the United Way bus to your company to stuff the bus with books. Shoot us an email by clicking here and let’s set up a time to bring the bus to you!
Donate Online – An online gift ensures that we have enough meals & books to give to the children of our community, as well as transportation to and from the various drop-off sites. Every $20 donated is able to provide a book and a meal kit (5 meals of non-perishable food) to one child.
Thanks to our 2022 sponsors!
