Travis Gryder was "living the dream" being an Eagle Scout from Blowing Rock Troop 101, a Firefighter/ Paramedic with Blowing Rock Fire Department, a volunteer member of Watauga Rescue, and one of the founding members of Watauga High School's "Athletes for Good." Travis cared for the wellbeing of others. As an example of Jesus's love, he did what he could to see that those around him had food. If you went to school or church with Travis, he may have even brought you lunch or a moon pie while sharing his smile and the simple, kind words, "You gotta eat!"
Everybody's gotta eat!
Travis's Lunchbox ongoing food drive was created in honor of his giving spirit. All food and donations go to feed the people who visit Casting Bread Food Pantry. If you would like to drop off canned items, food, or toiletries, stop by Casting Bread at 194 Aho Road in Blowing Rock or one of the following drop off locations.
