Rick McMahon, Community Campaign Co-Chairperson for United Way Tar River Region, and Ginny Mohrbutter, Executive Director, praised ECPS for contributing $11.359.39 to this year’s campaign.
Special recognition awards were presented to schools attaining the highest total contribution per classification. Schools receiving those awards were Stocks Elementary School, South Edgecombe Middle School, and Tarboro High School.
According to McMahon, 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 36 local health and human service programs in partnership with 24 non-profit agencies, as well as, assist with hundreds of yearly information, referral and volunteer inquiries,” said Smith.
“This support helps thousands of our local citizens each year, improving quality of life for our children, adults and families,” he added.
