The Greatest Give Back

In 2024, Metro United Way and the Muhammad Ali Center hosted the fifth annual Greatest Give Back. The project attracted 600+ volunteers who filled 2,500 backpacks with school supplies and 2,500 hygiene kits with essentials. Fifty nonprofits in the Greater Louisville region benefited from the project. Thank you to our sponsors: Muslim Aid, Yum! Brands, and Aetna.
