Stock the Shelves for Summer Drive Provides Relief to Asheville Families

Stock the Shelves AshevilleWhat is Stock the Shelves for Summer?

Stock the Shelves for Summer is a community food drive and fundraiser May 22-31 to provide food and essential supplies for local families in need before summer arrives. 

The drive is a partnership between area residents and six local business sponsors, including Mosaic Realty. We need your help to make this event a huge success!

If you have an agent at Mosaic already, contact your agent to schedule a donation pickup from a safe location outside your home. To learn more about the drive, make a financial donation, or find out how to drop off needed supplies, visit www.stocktheshelvesavl.org.

When you go grocery shopping, buy some extra food and supplies (list provided). You can either arrange for a pick-up of the supplies at your house, take them directly to a drop-off location, or simply donate money. Your donation will be matched by our business sponsors: $1 per donated item or per dollar donated, up to $30,000!  All donations go directly to Buncombe County Schools’ Family Resource Center and to Asheville City School's Family Resource Center and Emergency Assistance Fund (through Asheville City Schools Foundation) to help with their supplemental meal and supply programs.

Primary - Stock the ShelvesWhy is this an urgent need?

Asheville City Schools has served over 48,000 breakfast and lunch meals to students in the district since the physical closure of schools on March 16. Their Resource Center has additionally provided 53 families with supplemental food / household items / art supplies / diapers and book boxes in the four weeks it has been open. Buncombe County Schools Resource Center is currently providing 108 supplemental food boxes per week and 900 meals per day to 300 addresses in the county. The need for basic supplies is ongoing and increasing. 

How can we work together to help?

Our goal is to Stock the Shelves for Summer with a food and household item drive between now and May 31. Six Asheville-based businesses- Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty, JAG Construction, Symmetry Financial Group, Jade Mountain Builders, Alfie Loans, and Village Antiques- are matching $1 per donated food item or per dollar donated, up to $30,000.  Volunteers from those companies are also driving to homes to pick up donations and deliver to schools. 

"At a time when it is tempting to solely focus on your own small business or family, Stock the Shelves sponsors have stepped up to support everyone who calls Asheville home. Thank you to these local businesses for looking at summer as not just a time to get back to business but as a time to work for our kids and families most impacted by this pandemic,” Copland Rudolph, Executive Director of Asheville City Schools Foundation.

You can help by purchasing needed items or making a financial donation. Visit www.stocktheshelvesavl.org for a list of needed items and for more information on how to schedule a pick-up or make a donation.

Simple Ways to Support Hard-Hit Businesses in Asheville

Asheville Help During CovidAs the economic repercussions of COVID-19 continue to rattle the Asheville small-business community, finding ways to offer support is more important than ever. For Ashevillians seeking to bolster independent businesses, these movements and resources can be a good starting point.

#AshevilleStrong

#AshevilleStrong encourages people to buy local gift cards from businesses around Asheville and Western North Carolina. Local restaurants, hotels, shops, salons, theaters and markets that are seeing a decline in visitors can get an immediate boost from gift-card sales. #AshevilleStrong’s website offers a list, updated daily, of the area businesses offering gift cards, so support can continue even while stores and restaurants stay shuttered or limited.

Asheville Take-Out foodRestaurant Takeout in Asheville

One simple way to support the Asheville economy through the coronavirus epidemic is to continue patronizing hard-hit area restaurants by ordering meals for takeout and delivery. Many restaurants offer online ordering and payment, as well as curbside pickup, for a contactless experience. Asheville Independent Restaurants keeps an updated list of local restaurants offering take-out or delivery.

One Buncombe Fund

This fund – a centralized COVID-19 donation and relief center – has been launched by Buncombe County and the City of Asheville in conjunction with business leaders from the Asheville-Area Chamber of Commerce, Mountain BizWorks and the Land of Sky Regional Council. The mission of the fund is to provide bridge funding to area small businesses as well as to support the basic needs of individuals who have lost employment due to COVID-19. It is a secure and immediate way to donate to the response effort. 

Home Made Face MaskSupplyConnector

Finished goods, materials, manufacturing capability and support services are needed to combat COVID-19. SupplyConnector was started by a small group of outdoor industry professionals seeking a way to connect brands that were pivoting operations to help provide relief in the current crisis. This regional directory is designed to connect those who can supply materials and manufacture finished goods with essential providers who need them most. The site allows you to submit information to give or receive critical equipment (such as face coverings, shields, surgical masks and the like). Users can connect directly with one another.

There are many other ways to help out our local community as we continue with Stay Home and social distancing orders. Just a few others to explore are: United Way & Hands-On Asheville to donate goods and volunteer; Musician Relief Fund to support Asheville’s normally vibrant music scene as it experiences cancelled gigs, festivals and events; and Appalachian Grown Farmer Relief Fund to address local farmers’ needs as they deal with a dive in customers and sales.

Asheville Partnership Provides Early Education and Enrichment Guidance

Buncombe Partnership for Children Childcare

Childcare, youth activities, kindergarten: The educational and enrichment options available to parents of young children can feel overwhelming. Buncombe Partnership for Children offers parents in Asheville guidance and a range of resources to help them make the best decisions for their family as they embark on their educational journey. Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty is proud to help build up area families by supporting this invaluable initiative. 

Asheville Buncombe PreschoolsWhat is Buncombe Partnership for Children?

The group partners with local organizations to provide programs that improve the quality of early childhood education, increase access to affordable, high-quality early care, expand early literacy opportunities, and provide family support. The partnership’s vision is that every child in the Asheville community will reach his or her fullest potential and be prepared for lifelong success.

Asheville/ Buncombe County Childcare

Finding the right childcare program can be daunting; the partnership points parents in the direction of helpful resources, such as Mountain Child Care Connections, a regional call center providing families with free, confidential information about quality child care to meet their individual needs. Another resource is the Division of Child Development & Early Education, which offers guides and a database for parents to easily research area childcare centers. Buncombe Partnership also offers a map of childcare centers in the county so parents can gauge proximity to home or work.

Play & Learn groups

Buncombe Partnership also works with Kaleidoscope Play & Learn groups, which are free adult-child groups for families of children 3 months to 5 years old. Activities include singing songs, stories, art, outdoor play, puppet shows and crafts. Children must reside in Buncombe County and not be in enrolled in licensed childcare. Registration is ongoing, but is required before attending and begins immediately.

Asheville Buncombe ChildcarePre-kindergarten

Buncombe Partnership for Children administers the North Carolina Pre-Kindergarten Program  (NC Pre-K) in Asheville. NC Pre-K is a state-funded, free, high-quality early care and education program that aims to enhance children’s school readiness. The program is offered for 6.5 hours a day for 10 months; programs are located in public schools, private childcare programs, and Head Start. 

Reach Out and Read

Reach Out and Read program provides free books to children 6 months to 5 years at all well child doctor’s office visits. The medical practitioners have a chance to observe the child’s interest in and approach to the book, which helps them note development stages. Doctors also advise families on how best to introduce books and build a love of reading. Reach Out and Read’s partnership with Buncombe Partnership for Children has helped to bring the total number of area children served to 1,600 annually.

Asheville Adventure Play

The partnership has been working with community volunteers to provide untraditional play opportunities, hosting pop-up adventure playgrounds around Buncombe County. Its newest collaboration will bring pop-ups to Buncombe County Sports Park throughout the summer.

Kindergarten preparedness

To help your child get ready for making the transition to kindergarten, the partnership recommends you do a number of things before the first day. Talk with your child about their new school. What are they looking forward to?  What are they wondering about? Find books at the library about getting ready for school to read to your child. Practice getting ready. Take a trip to their new school. Even seeing the school from the outside can help your child feel more prepared.

Appalachian Offsets Program Aids Asheville Community, and Planet

Cut My Carbon Program Asheville

Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty is proud to join the movement toward a healthier planet by supporting green initiatives around Asheville. One of those initiatives is Appalachian Offsets, an organization that offers carbon offsets to fund projects that cut carbon-dioxide pollution.

What are carbon offsets?

Green Building AshevilleCarbon offsets are pollution equivalents that can be purchased to help pay for a renewable energy project, an energy-efficiency upgrade, or the like. So, for example, if you bought three tons of carbon offsets, that money would go to fund a project that either reduces carbon-dioxide production by three tons, or removes three tons of carbon dioxide from the air. Carbon offsetting is a long-lasting tool that aids the environment as well as the community.

An initiative from the Green Built Alliance, Appalachian Offsets allows Asheville residents and businesses to offset their carbon footprint while at the same time helping local schools, non-profits, and other area organizations. A few simple steps will get you there: first, calculate your carbon footprint, then make a (tax-deductible) donation to Appalachian Offsets to offset your footprint, at a rate of $20 per ton. The funds are then matched with a local school, non-profit, or other community organization to pay for an energy-efficiency project. Projects spearheaded by Appalachian Offsets include energy-efficiency lighting retrofits, water-conservation upgrades and solar-energy installations. The organization is also exploring local tree-planting projects. 

Appalachian Offsets is a group effort

Appalachian Offsets Asheville“Appalachian Offsets offers individuals the ability to simply offset their personal carbon footprint and also encourages local businesses to offset the footprint of their entire operations or a portion, with options to contribute either by making an annual lump sum or dividing it into more manageable recurring monthly payments,” said Green Built Alliance Community Engagement Director Cari Barcas. 

“We are extremely grateful to our generous business supporters, including AB Tech, Deltec Homes, Deutsch & Gottschalk Attorneys at Law, Joel Adams and Associates Investor Advisors, LaZoom, Mosaic Realty, Samsel Architects, SouthWings, Trillium Family Medicine, and Vandemusser Design for offsetting their footprints through Appalachian Offsets,” continued Barcas. “We invite the whole community to visit our website to learn about your personal or professional carbon footprint and offset options through our individual and business carbon calculators.”

For more information on Appalachian Offsets, and to calculate your carbon footprint, go to https://www.cutmycarbon.org/.

As It Grows, Mosaic Realty Builds Support for Asheville's Community Organizations

Mosaic Realty Gives Asheville NC

Giving back to the community that has supported its growth has always been Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty’s mission. Since the realty’s founding nine years ago, the number of non-profit and community organizations Mosaic supports has expanded to encompass a range of segments across Asheville’s population. In 2019 alone, Mosaic gave over $115,000 to 70 non-profit and community organizations in the Asheville area. In addition, representatives of Mosaic regularly volunteer their time organizing and assisting these community initiatives.

Mosaic understands the importance of supporting area organizations that advocate for the vitality of our local and global community. To that end, the realty aims to assist groups that touch on many segments: from youth education to health and wellness to social justice and beyond.

Mosaic Realty Asheville DonationsYouth and schools

Aiding organizations that educate and nurture Asheville youth is important to Mosaic. Among recipients of Mosaic support are Asheville City Schools and Asheville City Schools Foundation, Big Brothers Big Sisters of WNC, and Buncombe Partnership for Children. Mosaic also donates to the Western Youth Network, WNC Children’s Fund and Youth OUTright.

Environment and green initiatives

Mosaic understands that as stewards of the Earth, it’s important to care for our environment through protective measures and green initiatives. Mosaic dollars go to support Western N.C. organizations like MountainTrue, RiverLink and Asheville GreenWorks, as well as Green Built Alliance.

Housing 

Ashevillians in need have a number of resources at their disposal, but these organizations rely on countless volunteer hours and dollars to dole out that assistance. Mosaic helps by donating to groups like Homeward Bound and Mountain Housing Opportunities.

Mosaic Realty Gives Asheville NCCulture

Asheville is brimming with art and cultural events that enrich the community. By supporting such organizations as LEAF Community Arts, Asheville Music School, Diana Wortham Theatre, and Blue Ridge Orchestra, Mosaic helps to make dance, music, art and other cultural experiences available to a wider population.

Health and wellness

A healthy population is a happy population: With a focus on helping to keep the community well, Mosaic supports Asheville on Bikes, Girls on the Run, Pisgah Rage Youth Mountain Bike Team, and the YMCA of Western N.C. And because mental and emotional health is just as important as physical well-being, Mosaic gives to All Souls Counseling Center.

Social justice

Aiding organizations that advocate for social justice is extremely important to Mosaic. Support from Mosaic Realty goes to such groups as Our Voice and Pisgah Legal. 

These are just a few of the many Asheville area organizations and non-profits that receive Mosaic’s backing. For a complete list of groups that benefited from Mosaic’s support in 2019, visit https://mymosaicrealty.com/donations-volunteer-program/.

Craggy Park Partners With Asheville City to Provide Trail System Access

Trails Near Craggy Park

The Craggy Park community in West Asheville offers the ideal combination of urban and natural amenities, and now the neighborhood will have a hand in connecting the entire Asheville community to a valuable nature preserve. 

Asheville city officials and non-profit organization MountainTrue are working within the 8-acre Falconhurst Nature Preserve to create a looping trail system. Craggy Park will work with the project to provide public access and a greenway entrance to the trail.

Craggy Park Walking Trails and BridgeThe preserve, deeded to the city in 2012 as a conservation easement from the Conservation Trust for N.C., allows for natural surface trails, but very little other development. The trails will be built and maintained at no cost to the city; neighborhood volunteers plan to prepare the trails this winter in time for use in the spring.

"Craggy Park is proud to have partnered with the City of Asheville and Mountain True to provide access and a greenway entrance to this exciting new trail system,” said Mike Figura, Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty owner and real estate broker for Craggy Park. “By providing a public easement and building a trail through our urban nature preserve, we can link the community with a piece of city-owned property that was previously landlocked, and provide our residents access to a fantastic urban forest."

A sustainable urban community featuring streamside trails and organic gardens against a park-like backdrop, Craggy Park is situated within easy walking distance of West Asheville’s vibrant Haywood Road corridor. Its 45 phase I green-built homes, featuring modern, clean lines and bright, open designs, are responsibly constructed for low environmental impact and Craggy Park Entrancesustainable living. Ditching the car in favor of biking or walking to restaurants, grocery, schools, the library and other amenities along Haywood Road and Patton Avenue is easy for Craggy Park residents, making this neighborhood the ultimate in green living.

A neighborhood park includes a nature trail with benches, a lawn by Fox Creek, a “little free library,” a treehouse, an oversized double swing, organic gardens, a fire pit, a picnic area with a community grill and herb spiral gardens. Native, drought-tolerant and edible landscaping throughout the neighborhood provides a habitat for local flora and fauna.

For a personally guided tour of Craggy Park, or for more information on the trail system partnership, please contact Mike Figura at Mike@MyMosaicRealty.com or call him anytime at (828) 337-8190.
