SUPPORT THE KNOXVILLE AREA RESCUE MISSION

Knox Area Rescue Ministries provides daily for those most vulnerable and desperate among us, first supplying rescue services of food and shelter, then healthy, supportive relationships, and ultimately restoration, including job-training opportunities.

KARM serves nearly 1,000 meals per day, feeding not only the homeless, but many in crisis who must choose between food and other basic needs. KARM’s emergency and residential shelters for men, women and families are home to nearly 400 people each night, providing a safe place of encouragement to those in need.

Please bring an item to donate – we’ll deliver to KARM after the meeting! Or donate online: https://karm.org/donate/
