LENOIR, NC (October 26, 2021) – Blue Ridge Energy Propane and Fuels recently donated $2,918 to The Wig Bank of Caldwell County.

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 trucks. 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.
