Boone, North Carolina (November 14, 2019) – Blue Ridge Energy Propane and Fuels recently donated $4,459 to the Appalachian Regional Healthcare Foundation.

The donation represents a penny for every gallon of propane delivered in Watauga and Avery counties during the past twelve 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.

Employees across the Blue Ridge Energy service area say they feel proud to drive the trucks in honor of family members and friends impacted by breast cancer.  

Since beginning the program in 2013, Blue Ridge Energy Propane and Fuels has donated over $85,000 to local breast cancer related organizations across its service area in Caldwell, Watauga, Ashe, and Alleghany counties in North Carolina and Grayson County, Virginia.

The electric cooperative serves some 76,000 members in Caldwell, Watauga, Ashe, and Alleghany counties as well as parts of Avery, Alexander and Wilkes counties. Learn more at
