November Spotlight – Sharing House
PowerUp! Fundraiser will be at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church on Sunday, November 3 at 5pm starting in the Sanctuary. Joining this year’s Power Up! Dinner will be the Brevard Jewish Community and Unitarian Universalists of Transylvania County. Power Up! is an effort to raise much needed funds to assist low-resource families with heating costs this winter.
Everyone is invited to come for a dinner and learn about the financial struggle many low–wage workers face living in Transylvania County.
Each month we plan to feature a selection of our 45 supported agencies, each is an organization that inspires us and is in need of our support.
This November we wish to shine a light on three remarkable organizations: The Haven of Transylvania County, The Sharing House, and Meals on Wheels.
In the days ahead, follow us for more information on each of these supported agencies and how your donations directly benefit these worthy organizations.
We invite you to explore these organizations and find out more about their important work.

Here’s how it works: One or two days each week, you pick up the pre-packaged meals at 11:30 a.m. at the Quebec Community Club on Highway 64 [across from T. C. Henderson School] and deliver them to clients who rely on this hot meal daily. Your route would take about an hour and a half to complete. You meet the recipients, many of whom are elderly and housebound, as you deliver the meals. Often this brief visit is the highlight of their day.

The Blue Ridge Free Dental Clinic is the only non-profit provider of free comprehensive dental care in Western North Carolina. With a focus on restoration and prevention, the Clinic’s staff dentist and 13 volunteer dentists treat patients five days a week, and dental hygiene is offered three days a week at no charge to any patient. It is well-known that limited financial resources are a barrier to dental care. Medicare does not provide any dental services, and while Medicaid provides limited dental assistance, large portions of the needy population, particularly the working poor and elderly, do not qualify for that program. As a result of this, many patients have gone without dental care for years. Our focus on prevention and dental restoration aims to significantly reduce emergency dental visits. Lake Toxaway Charities, a financial supporter since 2014, has enabled our Clinic to grow its Hygiene Program and provide regular preventative cleanings for patients.
