$25,000 Check Presented to the American Red Cross

On September 27th, The Community Foundation of NC East presented a check to the American Red Cross Cape Fear Chapter for $25,000 to be used for relief efforts in the counties affected by Hurricane Florence. We were honored to be a part of the Red Cross Telethon hosted by WECT of Wilmington.

Our Foundation is extremely grateful to our generous donors who helped make this possible! 100 percent of these donations will remain in the eastern North Carolina region to assist with hurricane relief efforts!
