Dear Neighbors and Friends,
Our Transylvania County local residents need your help. Lake Toxaway Charities has had significant financial requests this past week from our local food banks and home health care, medical prescription providers, and K-12 county school system for immediate support to feed our local, less fortunate, residents as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak.
Lake Toxaway Charities is stepping up and responding with this financial help. It will not be a short term need, most likely, the need will be for months, not weeks. The needs in our beloved community are great.
Thank you for your response to this county-wide crisis. We pray you and your families stay safe. Read more by:
