about helping heroes by region a.h.e.a.d.

Region A.H.E.A.D. was originally formed in 2020 to be the region’s economic aid directory. A place to find out the best way to support local businesses. The intent of Region A.H.E.A.D. has evolved to continuously support our community through the pandemic and is now looking to give back to those who have spent countless hours taking care of the people of our community with a new initiative dubbed “Helping Heroes.”

“COVID infections have overwhelmed healthcare workers in our region again. Our Helping Heroes Campaign will demonstrate to them that we appreciate their tireless efforts to save lives. We are offering businesses and the public a way to donate to a fund that will purchase meals and gift cards from local businesses for these workers. Those donations will assist small businesses and restaurants around the region in their own recovery.”

– Andy Dietrich, Region AHEAD organizing member & Champion Chevrolet 

Region A.H.E.A.D. has begun their application to become a certified 501(c)3, but until that time, United Way of East TN Highlands will act as the fiscal agent of the group to provide additional support administratively, while also ensuring that charitable donations are now tax deductible.
