When you look into the face of a hungry child, it’s hard to look away. Because of  COVID-19, not only has the number of hungry children increased, we have also seen a 40% increase in the number of hungry households visiting food banks and pantries. That’s 4 families out of 10 who need food assistance.

In 2020, we donated more than 2.3 million pounds of food. Feeding hungry children and their families doesn’t cost much and each and every dollar we raise gets put to work, right away.

Thank you for helping children and their families in Central Appalachia.

There are So Many Ways to Give

John Douglas Campbell Endowment

If you were lucky enough to know John Campbell, you were lucky enough…John was born in Welch, WV, where his father worked in the coal fields and his mother was a nurse. His family soon moved to southwest VA where he spent the remainder of his childhood. John’s adult life was spent in Bristol, TN where he raised two sons, Knox and Preston. John had natural charisma, quiet strength, and a laugh that could fill a room. He was known for his kindness and generosity. Being in John’s presence made you feel special and he had friends from all walks of life. John was passionate and generous about supporting local small businesses and restaurants, live music, and towards the end of his life, Appalachian Sustainable Development. On May 5, 2020, John lost his courageous battle with cancer. Being true to form he never complained and lived each day as fully as possible. To honor John’s legacy, his sons, Knox and Preston, have created the John Douglas Campbell Endowment to support ASD. If you would like to honor John’s legacy, please send your gift to ASD, c/o John Douglas Campbell Endowment, 103 Thomas Road, Bristol, VA, 24201. 100% of your gift is tax deductible. The endowment is managed by Cary Street Partners in Abingdon, VA, and oversight will be provided by the ASD Board of Directors.
