Thanks to the Duke Energy Foundation, United Way of Wayne County will receive a $25,000.00 grant to build capacity and support basic needs for the Wayne County community.
Duke Energy is seeking to support the basic needs of many communities across North Carolina and thanks to the Duke Energy Foundation, the United Way of Wayne County is one of 39 organizations in North Carolina to collectively receive $1 million in grants.
“The needs are stronger than ever, and with our local partners tapped of resources, many citizens are falling through the cracks,” said Sherry Archibald, Executive Director of the United Way of Wayne County. “The grant will allow us to hire a part-time Community Healthcare Worker, and through the support of 211 and the platform, NCCARE360, we will provide resources, referrals, case management, and direct services.”
Duke Energy, District Manager, and Government & Community Relations Director, Derrick Remer, will present a check to the United Way during their Campaign Kick-Off on August 23, at 11 a.m., at the Maxwell Center.
The community is invited to attend and also visit with more than 40 local non-profits at the Volunteer Fair.
