  • MINISTRY OPPORTUNITY: Did you know that your donations to KARM (Knoxville Area Rescue Ministries) can earn Mount Olive debit cards? If you drop off donations at KARM locations, you will be given a receipt for your federal tax deduction. In addition, if you tell the attendant that the donation is for Mount Olive Baptist Church (East), and you provide the Church’s telephone number (865) 524-1601, the Church will earn credits for KARM debit cards. We then use the cards to provide for large and small clothing items, as well as for children’s clothing items. We thank you for your ongoing support of the Alma Hitchcock Davis Pantry and Clothes Closet.
