Meet Irv and Eleanor Welling

We give to the Cashiers Community Fund because we love our beautiful mountain home and the people who make it so special. In a place so rich in natural beauty, it is sad to find there are many families in need. Helping those who need it most is what we hope to accomplish with our gifts to the Cashiers Community Fund. Helping in the areas of health care, education, basic needs and environmental stewardship, we feel the Fund makes life better for all our residents. And best of all, it will continue to help long after we are gone.
