Our History

Where we came from

Blowing Rock Cares was started in November 2009 by Grandparent Linda Laughter, Parent Liz Tincher, and Blowing Rock School Secretary Trish Kohlasch after playground discussions in October.  In the first 7 months an average of 20 children and adults were helped each month.

As of 2013, Blowing Rock Cares has evolved into a resource of Rumple Memorial Presbyterian Church.

Where we're going

The future is extremely bright for Blowing Rock Cares! We will be building a brand new space for the food pantry as part of Rumple Church's approved Master Plan. Stay tuned for more!
