Living Waters Donations

As  the  result  of    the  Covid19  pandemic,  the  Cherokee Nation Reservation in Cherokee, North Carolina is closed to outside visitors. Since the closing, donations have been stacking  up  in  the  storage  room  at  the  Amazing  Grace Annex.  That  room  is  now full.    

Until  further  notice,  we request that no further donations be delivered.  Please hold onto them at home until we are able to schedule another trip to Living Waters to deliver our current donations.

Reach out to us.

We'd love to hear from you!
