United Way of Greater Knoxville is coordinating what’s hoped to be a huge outpouring of gifts to local nonprofits on Tuesday, Dec. 3. The Big Give offers competition and prizes for nonprofits that rally support from members and volunteers.

Julie Greene, community outreach coordinator for Knox County Rescue (formerly the Volunteer Rescue Squad), is asking friends to pitch in.

“We need your help,” she writes. “Please join our campaign and help us reach our goal of $5,000. Tell your friends and family members about the important work we do and ask them to join us in helping to make a difference.”

Greene says The Big Give is a chance to make history – “an opportunity to unite our community around causes in which we truly believe.”

Competition runs for 24 hours on Dec. 3 – giving will end at 11:59 p.m.
