The United Way of Knox County is proud to partner with area organizations to provide meals for area children. When schools moved to remote learning in March of 2020, UWKC stepped into the roll of serving lunches to local children who did not have access to school lunches. From March 2020 - September 2020 United Way of Knox County served over 162,000 meals to local kids in Knox County.
For the new school year, we are serving the children who participate in tutoring, after care, homework hub, and on SEL on Wheels. We also serve any child under 18 from 3-4pm Monday through Friday at Cedar Creek Community Room 1598 McKnight St. Galesburg, KCHA Woodland on Iowa Court, Bethel Baptist Church, and Mon./Wed./Friday at Brentwood Manor.
It's a credo. A mission. A goal. A constant reminder that when we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. We build the strength of our neighborhoods. We bolster the health of our communities. And we change the lives of those who walk by us every day.
