Proceeds from the fundraiser will help meet the greatest needs of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, beginning first with emergency relief efforts from the recent devastating wildfires.
“The outpouring of support from our community has been tremendous since the fires in late November,” said Brent McDaniel, director of marketing at Friends of the Smokies. “We are thankful for the local Chipotle stores for reaching out to set this up and helping to raise money for the park’s recovery.”
