The American Red Cross has an urgent need for blood donations to prevent another blood shortage as hospitals resume surgical procedures and patient treatments that were temporarily paused earlier this spring in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The United Way of Knox County’s Affinity Group, Women United, has made the decision to hold an online Power of the Purse Auction, partnering with Jagger Auctioneers, instead of holding a traditional live event, originally rescheduled on August 21, 2020.
All residents and property owners in the neighborhood around East Ohio Avenue and Howard Street from Gay Street to Quarry Street are invited to participate in a planning conversation hosted by the Area Development Foundation (ADF).
