Everyday Items Bring Relief
A NOW Grant from WNC Bridge Foundation allowed Blue Ridge Partnership for Children to supply 50 families with large laundry baskets full of hard-to-obtain essential items early in the pandemic. The baskets contained hygiene, cleaning, and everyday use items such as toilet paper and diapers.
Blue Ridge Partnership for Children is a local WNC chapter of North Carolina’s Smart Start system serving Avery, Mitchell, and Yancey Counties.
“We were incredibly grateful to support families early in the pandemic, and I know our families were overwhelmed with gratitude.“
