Providing assistance to food-insecure school children of Transylvania County
Over 80% of Transylvania County students qualify and are provided 2 meals a day by our schools. Over 1600 meals are currently being home delivered by school buses or are available to pick up at our schools as of March 18th. Lake Toxaway Charities delivered a $10,000 emergency grant on March 23rd to assist these efforts. On April 5th, Lake Toxaway Charities approved an additional grant of $10,000.

Due to the generosity and compassion of Toxaway Charities donors, Transylvania County Schools (TCS) was able to help at least 200 family units and over 250 children with grocery cards. TCS initially purchased $30,000 in grocery cards. These gift cards provide triage help to the families most in need.
