Haywood Community College and Champion Credit Union are once again joining forces to help people in Haywood County with heating assistance.
Hominy Valley Boys and several other local groups will host a Share the Warmth benefit concert from 2 to 5 p.m. on Feb. 12 in the HCC Auditorium. There will be designated rooms for playing with the bands for those who want to bring their own instruments.
“This year presents a bigger challenge for supplying heating aid to those who request it. Not only are there more requests and less money, there are also more first time requests than ever before,” said Patsy Dowling, executive director of Mountain Projects.
Admission is a minimum donation of $10 — 100 percent of which will go to Mountain Projects. Donations are tax deductible and checks should be made payable to Mountain Projects. Tickets available at the credit union and the HCC Bookstore.
There will also be drawings for two televisions and a confetti quilt.
