Take a minute this week to help out Friends of the Smokies. All week the First Tennessee Foundation is taking votes for its 150 Days of Giving. This week's winner receives $5,000. Friends of the Smokies can put that money to good work in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
The money will help the friends group tackle such projects in the national park as trail maintenance, treating hemlock trees against non-native insects, and even wildlife management efforts.
You can vote at this page. It will only take a minute, and not cost you a dime.
