About Pittman Center, Tennessee

Just minutes away from downtown Gatlinburg nestled in the mountains of Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the quaint community of Pittman Center. Pittman Center provides a unique blend of history, culture and natural scenic beauty that captures the imagination. Proud of their mountain heritage, residents work hard to preserve the historic landscape and mountain culture that beckons visitors to come and stay awhile. Time seems to stand still as one ventures forth to rediscover the beauty of the natural surroundings and rich history that defines the Pittman Center experience.

While staying in Pittman Center there is much to do and see including fishing, hiking, swimming, golfing, bird watching, wildlife viewing, visiting the historic City Hall, and strolling across the covered bridge – a little something for everyone. The Greenbrier entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park is within city limits and provides additional recreational opportunities for the entire family.

If you know of another community organization that would like to partner with us please reach out to us!

Who is it for?

If you, a resident of the Town of Pittman Center, are in a higher risk population (as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) for the COVID-19 virus and have no one that can assist you in obtaining essential items such as food, hygiene products, or medicine (if it is a medicine that can be picked up by another individual) during this pandemic.

If you, a resident of the Town of Pittman Center, have become unemployed or suffered a loss of income due to the COVID-19 virus and need assistance to obtain food and hygiene products during this pandemic.

How does it work?

  2. You will give us your name, address, contact information, general needs, and give us permission to share this information with our partnered Community Organizations.

  4. A member of these Community Organizations will contact you and discuss how they can assist you in obtaining these products.
  5. Community Organizations will drop the products off at your residence (on your porch or in another way to avoid contact) and disinfect the products.

It’s that simple!


Please remember this program is only for those who are in a higher risk population as defined by the CDC for the COVID-19 virus and have no other way (family, friends, etc.) to obtain essentials or for those, of any population, who have suffered unemployment and loss of income as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and can no longer provide essential items for themselves or their family.
