June 2020 Newsletter

It has been the most unusual spring for all of us and we wanted to recognize those who have risen beyond the “me first” way to step forward to help each other during these times.  Much work and many efforts and wonderful results have happened. This includes the food pantry, community chefs providing meals, the daily lunch program and so much more!

To everyone who has contributed to the betterment of our community in one way or another, we offer a sincere and resounding THANK YOU!

Sandy Mush Community Center is continuing to suspend programing and public use of the building. Please note that our 24/7 Wi-Fi is still available for use outside the building on personal devices – smcc (all lowercase) is the log on password.

We encourage all community members to keep up to date with the latest information regarding the outbreak by visiting the following sites:

We will update our Facebook and Instagram feeds with new information regarding Community Center operation.

FOOD PANTRY

The SMCC Food Pantry is now open on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month from 9:30 am to 11 am. 

The next pantry will be June 11. 

We do pre-made boxes with drive-up service only, clients are allowed out of their cars. We will follow the CDC, Buncombe County, and MANNA guidelines.

Please remember to check on your neighbors and if they need a box and can’t get to our pantry for whatever reason (working, ill, lack of transportation, etc.), please come and get a box for them. All we request is the size of the household and do not need names. 

  1. Once you arrive, a volunteer will direct you to where you need to line up.
  2. Make sure you have room for your box and bags in your trunk or back of your truck. We will not be placing items inside of people’s cars.
  3. Have your trunk open and ready to receive the pantry items.
  4. Do NOT get out of your car.
  5. When you reach the front of the line, a volunteer will ask for your household size and another will place items in your trunk or the back of your truck.
  6. Once you have received your items, you will need to leave the SMCC property. There will be no gathering on the SMCC grounds or parking lot.
