TFE Holds Fundraiser for United Way of Anderson County
On April 17, 2018, TFE held a percentage night to benefit the United Way of Anderson County (UWAC TN) at the Oak Ridge Chipotle. Fifty percent of our fundraiser attendees’ purchases went directly to the United Way of Anderson County.
Naomi Asher, Executive Director of UWAC TN, said the following of our fundraising efforts:
"It could provide a field trip for 60 girls to be exposed to careers they might never have otherwise considered, it might provide 1200 snacks for kids afterschool who might not get dinner, or 2 backpacks filled with all the (name brand) supplies the teachers ask for at the beginning of school for kids who wouldn't otherwise have it - giving them confidence and excitement on their first day back!!"
TFE supports all United Way offices local to our TFE office locations. TFE encourages our employees to donate and/or volunteer with their local United Way.
