Throughout the year, the Asheville Dream Center hosts several Love Our City events to help meet the practical needs in our city. Love Our City is a united effort represented by local businesses, churches, and neighbors working together to make a difference in Asheville.
The Stop Traffic Walk raises funds for the nation’s largest human trafficking rescue & rehabilitation operation at the Phoenix Dream Center, StreetLightUSA, and Short Creek Dream Center. The funds you raise through Stop Traffic Walks in your city will help rescue trafficked individuals, and give them the skills necessary to build a strong and vibrant life.
We believe in helping children in our city have every tool and resource possible to succeed in school. The Back-to-School Bash not only involves handing out backpacks and school supplies but also offering haircuts and clothing. The event is filled with fun activities for the day including bounce houses, water slides, a BBQ, face-painting, Shaved Iced trucks, and so much more!
We know that a Thanksgiving dinner can be quite expensive. We hope to make sure that every family has a delicious turkey dinner for their family so that they can spend time with one another and enjoy the holiday together.
This is a special Christmas event that brings hope and joy to hundreds of children in our city. We have 1,036 children that are on our list to be adopted for Christmas this year. There is no greater joy that to see the smile and excitement on a child’s face when they receive a present.
These are all-city serve days where different groups will be deployed into the city for various serve projects.
