After 25 years of the Friends Across the Mountains Telethon, Friends will host a new Donor Drive Campaign so we can keep everyone safe and healthy amid the Coronavirus-(COVID-19) pandemic. Even though we’ll miss gathering our volunteers at the studio and bringing Friends together on-air, we’re excited for this opportunity to “think outside the box” as we celebrate and support our beloved park.
This year, Friends of the Smokies needs to raise $75,000 for a new fully equipped search and rescue vehicle as well as additional funds to support other critical park needs.
Help can help Friends of the Smokies support the park in ensuring guests have a safe and memorable visit to Great Smoky Mountains National Park as it reopens to its full capacity.
