Thanks for supporting AppKIDS

The High Country area is blessed with many caring and giving business owners and managers. For the last 32 years, area businesses and church affiliates have made financial contributions or offered amazing discounts toward a one-day event called AppKIDS, which is sponsored by the staff senate at Appalachian State University.

AppKIDS (Appalachian Kindness In Donations & Service) raises money to provide a shopping day to get winter clothing for 90 of the most financially disadvantaged children from all nine Watauga County Schools.  

Our 2012 event was held Nov. 16. While ASU faculty and staff donated three-fourths of the $16,000 raised, one-fourth came from area businesses and private off-campus individuals. Also, many local retailers provided extra discounts which made the donated dollars go further on AppKIDS day.

To all who supported AppKIDS in 2012, a sincere thank you.

From the AppKIDS program committee members: Andrea Mitchell, Cathy Scott, Cathy Ziegler, Cindy Trivette, Diana Barbee, Diane Lowenberg, Janice Smith, Janice Voss, Kelley Wolcott and Melody Campbell.
