The trucks are inspired by the company’s expanding relationship with the “RED – Remember Everyone Deployed.org” organization. RED – Remember Everyone Deployed.org is an organization based out of eastern North Carolina that works to support deployed military members and their families.
Employees at Blue Ridge Energy are donating time to pack and send care packages to troops stationed overseas. Blue Ridge Energy will also place significant emphasis on providing care packages to local service men and women who have family living in our service area, or are from our service area originally.
Employees will show ongoing support through awareness efforts, such as wearing RED shirts on Fridays, and working with the local NC National Guard Family Programs Center that provides services and resources to all military branches.
