Here at Scripps Radio Knoxville, our community is our family. So we're taking time every month on all 4 Scripps Radio Knoxville stations to spotlight local charitable causes that serve our community's needs with our 'Giving Light Initiative'. Each chosen non-profit cause receives $10,000 worth of promotional and commercial support to highlight their charity and the selfless work they do to help our friends and neighbors in East Tennessee.
This month's charity is East TN Technology Access Center
Over 22,000 people in Knoxville alone have a disability that affects their vision, hearing, cognition, mobility, self care and independence. And that number only increases with age. Since 1988, East Tennessee Technology Access Center has provided services and devices for people with disabilities, their families and caregivers, teachers, therapists, and employers. From Seniors who want to live independently to youth and adults with disabilities who want to improve literacy and employment skills, ETTAC provides specialized equipment, technical support and training, design and adaptation of products used at home, school and work, as well as literacy and GED skills training.
If this is something you're interested in for your charity. Let us know!
