The Pearl’s Pantry Fund was established by V.J. “Puck” O’Neal in honor of his beloved wife, Pearl, according to McIntyre. “It was Mr. O’Neal’s intention to use the proceeds from this endowment fund to help local nonprofit organizations relieve hunger and lack of access to quality prescription medicines for less fortunate citizens of Carteret County,” he said.
