Coronavirus Response:

Dear Neighbors and Friends, on Monday, March 23rd we sent a message asking for help as we support our local agencies who are providing aid to our neighbors with food, shelter, and medicine during this difficult time of the Coronavirus outbreak. You have humbled us. Since our email went out we have received donations or pledges totaling $28,100. We immediately distributed $28,000 of these funds among the following agencies:

Transylvania Christian Ministry, Sharing HouseTransylvania County SchoolsNC MedAssistMountain Roots, Inc.Change the World (meals for the elderly and home bound)

Requests for emergency grants continue to pour in. As we mentioned earlier, we expect our neighbors will need our support for months. Your generosity is deeply appreciated and is being used to help the most vulnerable in our community.
