The Beaufort County United Way Hurricane Florence Recovery Fund raised $54,000 from local individuals, Grady White through the Pitt County United Way, the United Way of North Carolina, and United Way Worldwide. This fund was used to support local non-profit agencies that provided immediate relief efforts for those affected by the storm and long-term recovery needs. No administrative costs* were assessed and 100% of dollars raised were invested locally. The Fund will be managed and allocations approved by members of the Beaufort County United Way Board of Directors.
*Admin costs were covered by First Bank, Inc.
