News and Needs

To keep our staff, volunteers and clients safe during the upcoming solar eclipse on Monday, Aug. 21, IAM will close at noon.
IAM needs backpacks for 2nd-5th grade girls and boys; and 6th-12th boys and girls.  We have distributed school supplies to 238 children so far this year; 206 of those have received new backpacks.  We need your help to continue to provide backpacks with the school supplies.  Last year iam provided school supplies to 529 children whose families were in financial crisis. we expect to reach that number again this year.  donations may be dropped off at iam's new location at 310 freeman street near the blue ridge mall.  for more information call 828-697-7029 and ask for rebecca moon.

We are now signed up with Amazon Smile.

If you go to you will be directed to a page where you can choose a charity. Choose Interfaith Assistance Ministry and the Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% (half a percent) of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping & handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges.

For your purchase to be counted, instead of going to Amazon, go to Amazon Smile and shop through there.

Half a percent doesn't sound like much but it will mount up and every little bit helps.
