To benefit area food banks
At the end of each season at Lake Toxaway, many residents clean out their freezers and pantries and throw away good food. Our less fortunate residents in Transylvania County need this food, especially with massive COVID job losses and other COVID impacts.
Thankfully, the Greystone Inn, in the beautiful giving spirit of Mrs. Lucy Armstrong Moltz has agreed to collect donations of food, cleaning supplies, and toiletries September 15-November 30. The Greystone is equipped and ready to handle the safe storage of non-perishable, perishable and frozen food. Donations should be dropped off at the Greystone Inn by contacting Paulette Todd, Greystone Inn General Manger, for specific details. Lake Toxaway Charities supports several food banks in Transylvania County and will coordinate distribution of all collected food from the Greystone Inn.
All food donors should contact Paulette Todd, Greystone Inn General Manager, for specific details at:
