Blue Ridge Energy Propane and Fuels Donates over $3,200 to Women in Touch


West Jefferson, North Carolina (October 22, 2020) – Blue Ridge Energy Propane and
Fuels recently donated $3,265 to Women in Touch.

The donation represents a penny for every gallon of propane delivered 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 $97,000 to local breast cancer related organizations across its service area in
Caldwell, Watauga, Ashe, and Alleghany counties.

Blue Ridge Energy is a member-owned electric cooperative, serving some 76,000
members in Caldwell, Watauga, Ashe, Alleghany, Alexander, Avery and Wilkes counties.
The cooperative’s subsidiary, Blue Ridge Energy Propane and Fuels, provides
residential and commercial services in the cooperative’s service area, Catawba and
