NHRMC is partnering with The United Way of the Cape Fear Area to raise money to provide resources to help those in our community.

NHRMC employees can pledge to donate using payroll deduct, and the first donation will be deducted in January. If you donated last year, your donation will not roll over!

How to Donate

Last year, nearly 300 NHRMC employees donated to the United Way. Our goal this year is to receive donations from at least 400 employees.

NHRMC Employees have the option to donate one time through a pledge card, donate one time through payroll deduct, or donate per pay period through payroll deduct. If you donated using payroll deduct in 2018, that pledge will not roll over. If you want to donate in 2019, you must sign up again.

Atrium employees and medical staff members who are not directly employed by NHRMC can donate using the pledge cards. If you need a pledge card, contact Victoria Oxendine, Terri DeWees or Angela Livingood.

All payroll deductions will be taken beginning the first pay period in January 2019.

Our local United Way serves New Hanover, Pender, Brunswick and Columbus counties, with services focused on preparing children and youth for success and strengthening families and individuals.

After Hurricane Florence, the United Way assisted our communities with shelters, low-cost housing, home repairs, rental assistance and mortgage assistance.

On a daily basis, UWCFA partners with 38 local agencies to assist families facing homelessness or food insecurity, student support services, medical and dental appointments for the uninsured, emergency shelters, and connecting individuals with health and human services organizations, among other initiatives.

Some of the community organizations who receive help are Boys and Girls Homes of NC, Communities in Schools, Nourish NC, YWCA, and Domestic Violence Shelter and Services.

It is estimated that 17.7% of the population is in need – that’s more than 84,000 people in our area who need our help. These people are our neighbors, our families, our friends and, sometimes, even us.
