NHRMC employees raised almost $71,000 for The United Way of the Cape Fear Area this year. While that’s less than this year’s goal of $100,000, it’s still an impressive showing during the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The final prize winners were:
Kathleen Riley for the AirLink helicopter ride
Neta Greenlief and Edith Williams for the massage gift certificates
NHRMC’s leadership team donated more than $35,000, coming close to the $40,000 leadership goal. Thanks to NHRMC Executive Vice President of Hospital Division Andre Boyd, who is a member of the United Way’s Board of Directors, for his leadership as the campaign’s executive sponsor.
This year’s donations will benefit the United Way’s nonprofit partners in Brunswick, Columbus and Pender counties, including Boys and Girls Homes of NC, Communities in Schools, Nourish NC, YWCA, and Domestic Violence Shelter and Services. See a full list of partners here.
NHRMC chose to target its donations to the larger Cape Fear region to show its commitment to caring for the community beyond New Hanover County. Food insecurity and domestic violence are prevalent in these rural counties, and those issues have only been exacerbated by COVID-19.
