Mike Smith, United Way Vice President of Resource Development, and Ginny Mohrbutter, Executive Director, praised ECPS for contributing $12,815.23 to this year’s campaign.
Special recognition awards were presented to schools attaining the highest total contribution per classification. Schools receiving those awards were Princeville Elementary School, Martin Millennium Academy, and Tarboro High School.
According to Smith, the contributions from ECPS will help support thousands of our local citizens.
“United Way works in all communities across the twin counties. Through United Way donations, we are able to fund 33 local health and human service programs in partnership with 22 non-profit agencies, as well as, assist with hundreds of yearly information, referral and volunteer inquiries,” said Boone.
“This support helps thousands of our local citizens each year, improving quality of life for our children, adults and families. This is helpful now more than ever with the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew,” he added.
