Founded in 1951, we have over 70 current members and over 500 sustaining members. Over the past 70 years, our organization has grown and developed with the changing needs of Blount County. Through many community partnerships and our committed members and sustainers, we serve our local children through Toys for Blount County, Kicks for Kids and Kits for Kids. I invite you to learn more about our organization through exploring our website and visiting our Facebook and Instagram pages.
