Ways to Give

Why should I give locally?

Giving to United Way of Hamblen County is the most powerful way to give back to your LOCAL community because…

  • a gift to United Way improves the lives of many people through Our Partner Agencies. These agencies help youth succeed, respond to emergency, crisis, and shelter needs, care for seniors, and improve people’s health and abilities. Your money stays in your own backyard. Donations to United Way of Hamblen County support local people: children, adults, families, and seniors. While you might have some idea of what people in another country need, you probably have a much better idea of what people in your community need.
  • our youth thrive on opportunity! We support agencies that support growth and opportunity whether it’s temporary or long-term housing, early childhood education, the Arts, educational & social activities during after-school and extended school breaks, mentoring, outdoor activities, and lifeskills, and programs specifically for girls.
  • it helps build an even stronger community. Stronger communities seek to improve the lives and futures of their residents by encouraging everyone to become the best versions of themselves.
  • people right here in our county have needs, too. Through the individual and collective purposes of Our Partner Agencies, a bridge of support is created to help others cross streams of troubles — ultimately helped, encouraged, guided, and taught how to support themselves. This is the most self-sustaining solution to issues such as food or housing insecurity, substance misuse and addiction recovery, homelessness, financial and emotional management, and unmanaged healthcare needs.
