Let our New Year’s resolution be this: we will be there for one another as fellow members of humanity, in the finest sense of the word.

Rosman District Schools were able to help 107 students and their families with gifts, food boxes and Christmas hams. Parents and family members have been so appreciative as they have come to the school to get their gifts. The last gifts went home just before Christmas day. Rosman District Schools says a HUGE THANK YOU to Lake Toxaway Charities donors for their very generous contribution!! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!
I’m dreaming of a white Christmas,
Just like the ones I used to know
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white
“The North Toxaway Baptist Church Food Bank was established in 2005 to provide for those in need in the local area, distributing food twice a month. In 2015, the Food Bank teamed with Manna Food Bank in Asheville, paying a small delivery fee and a portion of costs for the purchased food. Volunteers from the church congregation and others work every other week to help unload trucks, stock shelves, fill food boxes, and distribute food to over sixty registered families from the Lake Toxaway, Sapphire and Quebec communities. Thanks to funding from Lake Toxaway Charities and others, the North Toxaway Baptist Church Food Bank continues to offer much needed food assistance in western Transylvania County.”
