Lake Toxaway Charities recently approved a $15,000 grant request to fund Meals on Wheels programming. Meals on Wheels delivers hot lunches daily to the homes of house-bound seniors in the upper part of Transylvania County. Volunteers make these deliveries to recipients who are pre-enrolled with the program manager. Other funding is provided by the Home and Community Care Block Grant, proceeds from sales at the Tiger Town Thrift Store in Rosman and monetary donations from the caring public.
The loss of United Way in Transylvania County has been devastating to agencies like Meals on Wheels that depend on donations to provide this vital service to our community. The programming has become even more important as the elderly avoid the grocery stores in the wake of the Coronavirus Pandemic. We thank you for your support of this incredible organization and your willingness to help the elderly of Transylvania County.
