Currently there are 340 children within the Transylvania County Public School System that are classified as “food insecure.” This classification means that these children are not sure where there next meal will come from, or if there will be a next meal. Change the World Relief Organization is partnering with Transylvania County Schools to provide a special Christmas Backpack for these children. Your gift of $25 per week will provide a child with necessary food to make it through the Christmas Break. The backpacks will include nutritious food that’s easy for a child to prepare, along with fresh fruit, hard candy and hot chocolate. All donations are tax deductable and 100% of your gift will go directly to this project. To help, please call 828-877-2978.

The program is sponsored by Your local donations, Manna Food Bank, TCS-Child Nutrition, and Change the World Relief Org. This is the 5th year Transylvania County Schools has cordinated in the Back Pack Buddies program for Transylvania County School students.
