Lake Toxaway Charities approved grant requests in 2020 & 2021 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.
In 2020 Meals on Wheels delivered 23,000 meals, an all time record high. Meals on Wheels provides meals, 5 days a week, based on a sliding scale. Inability to pay does not disqualify anyone from receiving meals. The need in Transylvania County is great and Lake Toxaway Charities is stepping up to support this valuable program.
