Blue Ridge Energy Propane and Fuels Donates over $2,900 to The Wig Bank of Caldwell County – Caldwell Journal
LENOIR, NC (October 26, 2021) – Blue Ridge Energy Propane and Fuels recently donated $ 2,918 to Caldwell County’s Wig Bank.
The donation is equal to one cent for every gallon of propane delivered by the company’s pink “Fueling the Fight” propane vans in the past twelve months. Funds raised through the program are raised each October to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The donations then go to local organizations that provide useful services and support to people fighting breast cancer.
