About Us

Our Mission:

Our mission is to empower & uplift those in need by supporting community agencies that provide essential services. Through our charitable donations, we strive to help those agencies in Avery County so that individuals, families and animals have access to the resources and support they require to thrive.

Together, let’s be the catalyst for positive change, spreading of hope, and compassion throughout our community.

We proudly support over 30 organizations across Avery County each year!
