"BLOSSMAN GAS HEAT FOR HUNGER" PROGRAM

Between November 20 and December 20 of 2013, partial proceeds from each gallon of propane sold from the Asheville, North Carolina branch office benefitted MANNA Foodbank. MANNA collects, stores, warehouses and distributes food to MANNA accredited non-profits throughout 16 counties in Western North Carolina. www.MANNAFoodbank.org.

Blossman Gas is dedicated to helping our communities, as David Lipe, Asheville  branch manager notes, “Unfortunately, there are a lot of families in Western North Carolina that aren’t blessed with enough food to eat or money to heat their homes. The Blossman Gas Family wanted to help in this way, with the “Heat for Hunger” program.”  

The first year endeavor exceeded expectations. On December 27, a check was presented to MANNA for $2500.00 by David Lipe and the staff at Blossman Gas. This donation will feed 7500 individuals a meal.  The branch plans to continue the program in 2014.
