Just Jim delivering the 1st ALDHA Care package to Bob Peoples at the Kincora Hostel
The 2020 ALDHA Care Program will commence on 28 February; and in keeping with the tradition of this program, the first ALDHA Care Package of the year will be presented to ALDHA Honorary Life Member Bob Peoples and the Kincora Hiker Hostel in Hampton, Tennessee. The 2020 ALDHA Care Program will then travel to Georgia to begin visiting the hostels and service providers in the Southern Region of the Appalachian Trail.
The Appalachian Long Distance Hiking Association has dedicated itself to helping and preserving services on the Appalachian Trail. The ALDHA Care Program will provide assistance to low cost and donation only hostels along the Appalachian Trail.
Assistance to these Service Providers will be made available via logistical support, organized maintenance and cleaning events, and by helping the hostels with day to day operations during the peak hiking season.
Each year, ALDHA Care will deliver each of low cost and donation only hostels a package of items to help jump start their hiking season.
If you are a low cost or donation only hostel or service provider on the Appalachian Trail, and you need assistance, or if you would like to be added to the ALDHA Care volunteer data base, contact ALDHA using the form below.
