About 'The Greatest Giveback'
In January 2020, the Muhammad Ali Center and Metro United Way partnered together on a new service initiative, The Greatest Giveback to honor Muhammad Ali’s birthday – January 17 – and to continue the Center’s annual tradition of providing acts of service on this day.
More than 450 individuals showed up and created 780 personal care kits, 780 healthy snack packs and 78 blankets to go to 25 partner agencies to celebrate The Champ’s 78th birthday.
In 2022, we want to help knock out more need in our community but as you know we all have a common opponent in COVID-19 so we won’t be hosting a large event as we did in the inaugural year. The third annual Greatest Giveback will look a little different but still give Muhammad Ali the greatest 80th birthday gift of all – service to others in the Louisville community.
