How to Help

Online financial support of our COVID-19 emergency programs is now accepted.


"I'd like to help."
You've found the right place. During this uncertain time, many students and their families require assistance, and that's what our Buncombe County Schools Family Resource Center is all about. Through community volunteers, generous item donations, and financial support, we can make a difference together.

To schedule a food or toiletry item drop-off, or to volunteer, please call 828-271-4502 between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m, Monday through Friday. Our center is currently coordinated through the BCS Central Office at 175 Bingham Road, Asheville, NC 28806.

Financial support will be used to assist Buncombe County students and their families. Please make checks out to "Buncombe County Schools - School Nutrition" with "COVID-19 Donation Fund 5" in the memo/comment area. Checks may be delivered to our Family Resource Center or mailed to Buncombe County Schools, Attention: Deborah Frisby, 175 Bingham Rd., Asheville, North Carolina, 28806.

Do you know a student whose family is unable to get to our meal sites due to lack of transportation or financial burden?
