We are in the business of building solutions that support student success and strengthen communities. That passion extends beyond our work and into our very own communities. Giving back is vital to all of us. Across the country and in Eastern TN, we lend our services to volunteer, donate, and conduct meaningful research.
Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee
At the home office in Maryville, TN, we work closely with Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee to raise funds and donate our time, working together to end hunger. 1 in 8 people in Eastern Tennessee live in poverty and have difficulty meeting basic needs. Second Harvest Food Bank is trying to change that statistic in 18 East Tennessee counties. Read about our latest research project in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank.
of Blount County
We also work closely with Blount County Family Promise in Maryville, TN. Blount County Family Promise helps families find shelter, food, and people who will help take care of them. After the family has completed their Family Shelter program, they can acquire their Transitional Housing program. Blount County Family Promise also helps families find reliable transportation to travel to work. They have helped 2,533 families find homes.
