Knoxville Area Urban League



Red Nose Day was a huge success! People across the country came together to have fun and raise funds and awareness in an effort to end the poverty of children. The Knoxville Area Urban League has a vested interest in the empowerment of those under-served and underprivileged so we continue to support the cause and so can you!
