TWWOA Storm Repairs

$413 of $25,000 goal

In September 2018, North Carolina was hit by the devastating storm Hurricane Florence, which wreaked havoc across the state.
Unfortunately, many older structures in Western North Carolina suffered due to the large amount of rain - including our beloved Workshop headquarters. The Writers' Workshop of Asheville is headquartered at 387 Beaucatcher Rd, Asheville, NC, in a century-old farmhouse, and the house suffered extensive damage in the wake of Florence. The roof is experiencing significant leaking and lost many of its shingles, and water damage has occurred from the attic all the way down to some of the bedrooms and the workshop room. These repairs will not be covered by our insurance.

We need these spaces repaired so that we can continue our award-winning programs - workshops, contests and readings. Since 1985, we have helped thousands of adults and children from the tri-state region improve their writing and reading skills.

We need to raise $25,000 to replace the roof and repair interior damage. All contributions are greatly appreciated, and are 100% tax-deductible due to TWWOA's status as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Each and every dollar contributed to this campaign will fund our storm repairs.  Thank you so much from the bottoms of our hearts!
 
Sincerely, Karen Ackerson, Founder and Executive Director 

As Kurt Vonnegut once said, "God bless the Writers' Workshop!"

This campaign is managed by Shannon McDowell, Administrative Assistant at the Writers' Workshop of Asheville, on Karen's behalf.
