Endeavor attendees can Serve Knox by signing up for one of four volunteer days throughout the year. Volunteer East Tennessee will be on site to facilitate registrations.
Attendees also have the opportunity to support a community development project through a $1,000 mini grant competition. Finalists, selected by a judging panel and social media vote prior to the event, present their project during Endeavor 2019. The winner is announced during the closing session.

2018 Mini Grant Winner
Knoxville-Knox County CAC Mobile Meals
Coolers for Seniors
Every Monday-Friday, Mobile Meals volunteers deliver 1,000 meals to seniors across Knox County. Quality food served in a safe environment is top priority in order to prevent illness. Most funding received by the organization is designated for specific projects but does not allow for the purchase of basic items, like coolers, that ensure program efficiency and sustainability.
Plans for the Grant
$1,000 saved equates to 300 senior meals served. Using the grant money to replace existing or purchase new coolers reduces overhead and allows Mobile Meals to serve every senior who qualifies for the program.
