Western Carolina Community Action (WCCA)

Our Liquid Nutrition Program (Ensure) funded by Lake Toxaway Charities provides Ensure at a low cost to medically needy participants with documented conditions such as chewing or mouth issues, digestive problems or those who are receiving cancer treatments that prevent from them from being able to consume regular food.  Participants are approved by their physician for this program, and, as this is often the only nutrition they are able to consume, it truly is a life-saver.

Lake Toxaway Charities also sponsors our Mobile Meal Program, affectionately known as Meals on Wheels, which 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.
