At our inception 20 years ago, we chose to be different. Unlike other news organizations, we made the decision to provide in-depth, regional reporting free to anyone who wanted access to it. We don’t plan to change that model. Support from our readers will help us maintain and strengthen the editorial independence that is crucial to our mission to help make Western North Carolina a better place to call home. If you are able, please support The Smoky Mountain News.

The Smoky Mountain News is a wholly private corporation. Reader contributions support the journalistic mission of SMN to remain independent. Your support of SMN does not constitute a charitable donation. If you have a question about contributing to SMN, please contact us.

Mother’s Day cards to help Mountain Projects

Surprise you mom and other special women in your life this year with a greeting card that will also help make a difference in the community. 

The Mountain Projects Auxiliary has partnered with local artist Margaret Roberts to offer cards featuring Roberts’ artwork and a customized handwritten note for Mother’s Day. All you have to do is make a donation to Mountain Projects, fill out a form and the Auxiliary will send your card to the recipient letting them know of the generous donation made in their honor. Packs of notecards featuring Roberts’ work are also being sold for $8 for a pack of four or $12 for a pack of eight. 

Mountain Projects is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing vital services to the elderly and disadvantaged in Haywood and Jackson counties. 

Checks can be sent to Mountain Projects, 2177 Asheville Rd., Waynesville, NC 28786, specifying what you want the card to say. Donation can be made online at mountainprojects.org/index.php/ product/mothersday/.
