Eastern Cherokees donate to kidney foundation
The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians donated $150,000 to the National Kidney Foundation of North Carolina, the largest gift in the organization's history.

The donation will support the Kidneyville Cruiser, a mobile education unit. The cruiser will appear at the Cherokee Indian Fair Parade next week.

"We have helped this cause because it is very near and dear to our hearts,” said Principal Chief Michell Hicks, The Asheville Citizen-Times reported.
