NHRMC Food Drive Provides More than $27,000 of Nutrition for Kids

July 22, 2020

The 4th Annual NHRMC Summer Food Drive concluded on Friday, July 17 with record-breaking totals. The new virtual shopping option, combined with online donations, equaled a donation of $22,726 which surpassed last year’s total of $20,684. Employees also donated 2,500 pounds of food throughout the network which brings the grand total to $27,000 worth of donations! With your generous donations, proceeds will feed 540 children for the entire month of August!

A big shout-out to Cape Fear Heart Associations who donated $4,600 and 300 pounds of food! The Cape Fear Heart Staff raised $1,000 and Dora Daughhetee, the Practice Manager, challenged the physicians to match the staff’s donations for a little friendly competition. 

“Wow! We are blown away by the generosity and hard work of the NHRMC team. They always step up when our kids need it most. NourishNC and the food insecure children we serve are so fortunate to have NHRMC in our corner. There will be a lot of full bellies and smiling kids this Summer and beyond thanks to NHRMC.”  Steve McCrossan Executive Director NourishNC.

Nourish NC has expressed that NHRMC’s food drive donations will fund a significant portion of their second food box distribution this summer.
