Please Sponsor an Angel – A Needy School Child or a Senior in Western Transylvania County

Lake Toxaway Charities and The Greystone Inn are providing gifts and food for over 175 pre-screened school children and seniors in this third annual Angel Giving Tree celebration.  This year has been very difficult for our neighbors struggling to provide basic necessities in this stressful time of Covid.  We can put a smile on their faces during the holidays with your help!

A tax-deductible donation of $250 sponsors a child, ages Pre-K through high school, or a senior citizen.  This provides a complete set of new clothing for each child from jackets to shoes and a Christmas stocking filled with needed items such as soap and toothpaste and a small gift.  Each child also receives a larger wrapped gift from Santa, and the family gets a food box.  Seniors receive a gift card and a food box.

Staff at the 4 Rosman area schools will shop, wrap and deliver the gifts to the children and their families.  You need only write a check.  Everyone is invited to visit The Greystone’s Angel Tree from December 3rd through December 24th. Wooden angel ornaments representing each child will be removed from the tree as that angel is “adopted”.  These ornaments list the age, gender and school grade for each student.  Ornaments representing the seniors will have only a coded number to preserve their privacy.  Their gifts will be purchased and delivered by two volunteers in the community.

Please participate and adopt as many angels as you wish.  With your check, enclose a note telling us the age and gender of the child you wish to sponsor, and Santa’s elves will select one or more for you from the tree.  To adopt a senior, please write ‘senior’ on the ‘for line’ on your check.  Mail checks to Lake Toxaway Charities, P.O. Box 163, Lake Toxaway, NC 28747.  Or you may wish to ‘shop’ using The Greystone’s website entitled Sponsor an Angel at

Holidays are joyous times, and your gift ensures these local children and seniors will know they are not forgotten.  Thank you on behalf of our neighbors, Lake Toxaway Charities and The Greystone Inn, and may you also have a very joyous holiday season!  If you have questions, please call Sherry Minnich at 912-269-6508 or Paulette Todd, 828-966-4700.
