As part of a year-long initiative, Blue Ridge Energy Propane and Fuels, Boone, NC, has donated $4,329 to the Appalachian Regional Healthcare Foundation, as well as $3,265 to Women in Touch and $1,893 to the Alleghany Memorial Hospital Foundation.
The donations represent a penny for every gallon of propane delivered in Watauga and Avery counties in North Carolina in the past 12 months by the company’s pink “Fueling the Fight” propane delivery truck.
Funds raised through the program are totaled in October of each year, in commemoration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Donations are then provided to local organizations that provide beneficial services and support to those fighting breast cancer.
Since beginning the program in 2013, Blue Ridge Energy Propane and Fuels has donated more than $97,000 to local breast cancer-related organizations across its service area (Caldwell, Watauga, Ashe, and Alleghany Counties).
