RALEIGH – The North Carolina Community Foundation (NCCF) has re-activated its statewide Disaster Relief Fund to support Hurricane Irene victims in coastal and eastern regions of our state, according to Rodney E. Martin, NCCF grants chair and member of the statewide board.
Credit card donations can be made online where a contribution form can also be downloaded and mailed or faxed. Checks can be mailed to the NCCF headquarters office in Raleigh at 4601 Six Forks Road, Suite 524, Raleigh, NC 27609. Please designate your gift for Hurricane Irene victims. All contributions are tax-deductible, and no portion of the NCCF Disaster Relief Fund will be used for the Foundation’s administrative or operational expenses. NCCF encourages recipient agencies to also waive any fees associated with distribution of its Disaster Relief Fund.
“The total effects of this devastating storm will take some time to assess, but we already know damage and destruction are widespread,” said NCCF President Jennifer Tolle Whiteside. “Our hearts go out to the victims.”
NCCF has allocated $105,000 to the state’s April tornado victims from the statewide Disaster Relief Fund.
