Meet Howell Hammond

Beverly and I are proud to call Yancey County our home. First attracted by the mountains, the beautiful countryside and the mild summer climate, as each year has passed we have become more and more appreciative of the people, the history and the culture of arts and farming. We became interested in helping those in need and preserving the unique culture and the natural resources of our new home. That is why I included The Yancey Fund as a beneficiary in my IRA.

A $6,500 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Western North Carolina (BBBSWNC) will support a volunteer mentor recruitment program. Photo courtesy of BBBSWNC.
