NHRMC wrapped up its annual United Way campaign in November with a grand total of $25,576.30 contributed by more than 50 donors.
The bulk of donations went to the United Way’s health focus, which helps fund groups like Cape Fear HealthNet. Cape Fear HealthNet is a nonprofit physician referral service working exclusively with people who are uninsured or from low-income backgrounds. Cape Fear HealthNet helps its clients find a primary medical home where they can receive basic medical services, including preventive services, prescriptions, and lab work, and they can also get connected to a network of specialty providers if needed.
Last year, Cape Fear HealthNet was able to provide medical visits for more than 9,600 people thanks to donations from the United Way of the Cape Fear Area. A donation of $15 a month helps a fellow resident find a primary care doctor they trust.
Each donor was entered into a giveaway drawing for one grand prize, a helicopter ride-along from Apollo MedFlight, NHRMC’s AirLink provider. Jenny Creamer was this year’s grand prize winner.
An additional seven donors won Novant Health or United Way swag:
- Neta Greenlief, Wendy Holmes, Melissa Chapel, Kerry Lamb and Pamela Allsup won a Novant Health cup and blanket
- Terri DeWees and Tom Curley won a United Way t-shirt and coffee mug
By partnering with the United Way of the Cape Fear Area, which serves Brunswick, Columbus, New Hanover, and Pender counties, team members know their donations stay local and help their neighbors who are most in need transition from crisis to stability through access to health care and educational and financial security resources.
Thank you to all team members who contributed to this year’s effort.
