As the coordinator of last year's Asheville-Buncombe CROP Hunger Walk, Keever helped organize communities of different faiths to work together to help alleviate world hunger through an awareness and fundraising walk. She currently chairs the Buncombe County Library Board of Trustees and sits on the boards of CarePartners Health Services and Pack Place Education, Arts and Science Center.
