Outreach receives grant for generator

Thank you to the Dogwood Health Trust for recently awarding an Immediate Opportunities and Needs grant to Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry (TBOM) for a backup generator. The generator can power the entire facility, which provides us with the assurance that we can operate fully as well as store and distribute refrigerated and frozen foods during an extended power outage.

Thanks to Becker Electric and Dominion Energy for the efficient installation and excellent customer service. We are so grateful to the Dogwood Health Trust and the contractors as we have already had a power outage and were able to continue business as usual.

For more information on Outreach, please visit www.tboutreach.org or call 828-894-2988.
