Announcing Project Flame Out

get more from BRO

Wildfires are still burning on more than 45,000 acres in Western North Carolina.

In order to mobilize donation efforts, several shops are selling the items firefighters are requesting at discounts to customers buying for the firefighters, along with collection bins. These items will be distributed to firefighters by local fire stations.

Posters are in the process of being made, and we’ll be announcing the stores opting to participate here.

As of this posting, The Hub in Pisgah Forest and D.D. Bullwinkle’s in Brevard, North Carolina are participating.

If your business would like to participate, please contact Ky Delaney kydelaneywriting@gmail.com as soon as possible so that your shop name can be included in the press release.

Also, if anyone is interesting in volunteering with the logistics of this process, including approaching local businesses to see if they are interested in participating, distribution posters/bins to stores, and picking up goods to take to the fire stations, that would be excellent and most appreciated!
