Sugarlands Distilling Company partners to rebuild six homes in Gatlinburg

GATLINBURG, TN – Sugarlands Distilling Company, located in downtown Gatlinburg, has teamed up with the Appalachia Service Project to build houses in Gatlinburg after the wake of the 2016 fires.

The Appalachia Service Project works to eradicate substandard housing in Central Appalachia and to make homes warmer, safer and drier for families in need. After the devastating fires that swept through Gatlinburg last year, ASP promised to build 25 homes to help those in need in the mountain community. Sugarlands Distilling Company is excited to sponsor the completion of six of these homes monetarily and through service hours donated by employees.

“Last year we launched our ‘Smokies Strong’ campaign to raise money for our employees and neighbors affected by the Gatlinburg fires. The response was overwhelming, and we’re excited to continue to support Gatlinburg through our partnership with the Appalachia Service Project,” said Ned Vickers, Sugarlands Distilling Company President.

“We are pleased that another member of the Sevier County business community has stepped forward to help ASP in our wildfire disaster recovery and rebuild effort,” stated Walter Crouch, President, and CEO of Appalachia Service Project. “The donation from Sugarlands Distilling Company and the volunteer work performed by their employees will enable ASP to begin looking beyond this first phase of our recovery work. We welcome others to join us in the effort to rebuild homes for families who need a helping hand.”

Sugarlands Distilling Company encourages all companies and individuals looking to give back to consider donating directly to the Appalachia Service Project. Your donations will directly help ASP complete the remaining 15 homes for the people of Gatlinburg. Visit to make a monetary donation or to volunteer with the Appalachia Service Project.
