All of us at Create Appalachia would like to give a big “virtual hug” to the East Tennessee Foundation for their generous grant of $3800 for temporary operations support. The Neighbor to Neighbor Disaster Relief Fund grant will allow us to keep our activities rolling through the end of 2020 as we prepare to start brick and mortar operations near the beginning of 2021. We and our other covid-impacted organizations appreciate the support from our community to help us get through this uncertain period.

ETF’s Neighbor to Neighbor Disaster Relief Fund provides timely disaster grants to nonprofit organizations in our 25-county region in East Tennessee and is currently activated for the COVID-19 national emergency. ETF seeks to provide emergency funds to nonprofit organizations to meet some of the critical needs created by COVID-19 and is currently accepting applications.
