Community and Business

In an effort to assist with handling the COVID-19 pandemic, Wilkes Community College has loaned six ventilators to the three hospitals in their service area - Wake Forest Baptist Health Wilkes Medical Center, Ashe Memorial Hospital and Alleghany Memorial Hospital. Each facility has received two ventilators.

The Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce and The Village Foundation are pleased to announce the creation of the Rock United Relief Fund. This fund is dedicated solely to helping our businesses survive the impacts of COVID-19.

In response to the recent public health threat, the High Country community is coming together like never before to ensure every individual and family have the resources needed to supply their basic needs. Part of this work is remembering and recognizing programs and organizations that are in-place to support emergency food.
