hange The World Relief Org. supports Backpack Buddies, which addresses unmet needs in the community. Transylvania County Schools were recently able to add funds used to purchase food and special needs during the Coronavirus pandemic, including over-the-counter medicines for students in need.
Fruits, vegetables, dry goods, and other foodstuffs are delivered weekly through the program, with multiple packs provided over breaks such as Easter, summer months, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Food packs from the Backpack Buddies Program serve approximately 200 to 300 students year round, including multiple packs over holiday periods.
Change the World also supplies food distribution to our neighbors in need throughout Transylvania County. Change the World is particularly sensitive to the needs of the elderly in our population that cannot afford to risk a trip to the grocery store. They have implemented a brilliant drive through/zero contact system to serve the vulnerable among us.
Lake Toxaaway Charities is proud to support Change the World with a $5,000 grant for 2020.
