Free Rafting Day Hosted On May 23rd

Dillsboro River Company hosted its annual Free Rafting Day on Sunday, May 23. Rafters received a free self-guided trip down the Tuckasegee River with a donation of 10 cans of food for the food pantry at United Christian Ministries. This annual event is a popular start-of-the-season event for area residents and tourists. Almost 200 people floated down the Tuckasegee in rafts during this 4 hour event. United Christian Ministries received over 1900 cans of food! This event is a wonderful boost to UCM’s pantry at the start of summer, which is a crucial time for the food pantry as students get out of school and no longer receive free lunches.
Dillsboro River Company is located at 18 Macktown Road in Sylva, just across the bridge from the Dillsboro shops. For more information, visit www. northcarolinarafting.com or call (828) 507-2428. United Christian Ministries is a ministry offering a food pantry and financial assistance to residents of Jackson County. For more information on UCM, visit www.ucmhelp.com or call (828) 586-
8228.
