The Julius Peppers Hurricane Relief Fund has gifted $100,000 to North Carolina communities affected by Hurricane Florence. Walmart gift cards in $50 increments were distributed through United Ways in counties highly affected by the September storm, with Lenoir/Greene United Way receiving $10,000.
The gift cards were distributed through several local agencies, including K.A.R.E., The Gate, Greene Lamp Head State and Greene County Interfaith prior to the Christmas holiday.
“Lenoir/Greene United Way wishes to express our sincere appreciation to Julius Peppers, the Carolina Panthers and the Foundation for the Carolinas for their generosity in supporting our communities as we recover from Hurricane Florence,” Lenoir/Greene United Way executive director Molly Taylor said. “This gift will have a positive and immediate impact for many individuals and families.”
