On Tuesday, Nov. 30, the Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation will celebrate Giving Tuesday, by raising funds to support the purchase of new first-responder equipment to better serve the hundreds of thousands of guests who visit Grandfather Mountain annually.

Grandfather is aiming to raise $3,000 to purchase the equipment.

If more is raised, the extra funds will help replace AEDs currently in use on the mountain.

The nonprofit Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation strives to inspire conservation of the natural world by helping guests explore, understand and value the wonders of Grandfather Mountain.
