Coronavirus Response – Change the World 5/6/2020

5/6/2020 Update:

Lake Toxaway Charities donated $5,000 in late March to Change the World to aid in fresh food purchases for the elderly and vulnerable in Transylvania County. Food distributions have been in high demand, at least three times the normal numbers.

On May 1st, Lake Toxaway Charities granted an additional emergency grant of $6,510. The additional emergency grant was utilized to purchase 8,400 pounds of chicken for those in need in our community. This purchase included: legs, boneless skinless breasts and thighs.

In the interest of food safety, Change the World consulted with Carolyn Barton, who is a certified food handler, regarding the transportation and storage of the chicken. Ms. Barton also serves as the director of the Transylvania County School System Child Nutrition Department. The chicken was successfully and safely delivered on May 6th.

To-date, Lake Toxaway Charities has granted $11,510 to Change the World in an effort to support their important work in our community.

Please watch the video below from Change the World’s April 30th food distribution. It is highly moving and shows the desperate need in our community for groceries and other basic supplies. Lake Toxaway Charities and Change the World thank you for your much needed support.

Lake Toxaway Charities is committed to working with agencies in Transylvania County who are providing a vital link to necessary resources of food, medication, and shelter during this difficult time. If you are able, please consider a donation to Lake Toxaway Charities to help the less fortunate of our community who need assistance during this pandemic.
