BOONE — One of the traditions John and Faye Cooper established as soon as they could afford to after re-opening the Original Mast Store in Valle Crucis was giving back to the community. Over the years, that tradition has grown and now includes organizations and causes in three major categories – human needs, arts and education and conservation across all our home communities.
Agencies that are often called upon for help with putting food on the table – local food security partners – are going to need our help now more than ever. To that end, Mast Store is launching the Gift Cards for Good program. When you purchase a Mast Store gift card, 20 percent of the total amount will be donated to food bank partners. You can designate your favorite one, or Mast will divide the amount equally among them. In Valle Crucis and Boone, proceeds will go to the Hunger & Health Coalition.
These gift cards can be used almost immediately online for orders shipped directly to your home or at stores for curbside pickup (where available). They can also be saved for later use or given as gifts.
