The United Way of Knox County is teaming up with Duke Energy to help some agencies during this COVID-19 pandemic.

The Local Impact Fund has been set up to take donations for this effort.

United Way Director Mark Hill says all of the money raised will be kept local– with 100% of the funds going directly to people in need.

More details on the process and timing of these funds will be released next week.

Hill says interested individuals, groups or businesses wishing to make a donation can do so in one of 3 ways:

  • By check to United Way of Knox County P.O. Box 198 Vincennes, IN 47591 with notation to COVID-19 Local impact fund.
  • Going to the United Way of Knox County Facebook site and clicking on the post for Knox County COVID-19 Relief Fund
  • Text KNOXSTRONG to 91999
