The Dillsboro River Company helped obtain over 600 non-perishable necessities such as canned food or soap for United Christian Ministries of Jackson County during its sixth annual Can Day on June 2.
United Christian Ministries is a non-profit organization that has been assisting locals in need since 1989. Throughout the last 25 years they have provided food, furniture, financial help, and various other necessities.
Shane Williams, owner of The Dillsboro River Company, likes combining fun with fundraising for a good cause.
“My family and I were first introduced to the Jackson County United Christian Ministries through our church, Sylva First United Methodist. We jumped at the opportunity to not only assist United Christian Ministries, but to give locals a chance to raft and spend time with the family for an affordable price.”
Individuals who donated ten items received a free rafting trip on one of the most beautiful rivers in the country, the Tuckaseegee.
Carly Smith, a WCU student and one of the participants said, “This was seriously the highlight of my summer so far. This was my first time at the Dillsboro River Company, but I will definitely be back. Everything was just so beautiful.”
