Whether that is your time, talent, or treasure, the charitable act of giving can provide a positive impact on our own lives, as well as others around us. Check out CEO, Tommy Taylor's Greater Wilmington Business Journal Insights article: http://ow.ly/h0Iz50FgK6x

What a fantastic opportunity for our community youth to explore and learn more about the law, as well as experience an insider’s perspective through a unique, behind-the-scenes Court Camp! Earlier this month, The Office of the District Attorney hosted their second annual Court Camp, which included enriching experiences such as courtroom exposure, field trips to partner agencies, judicial and government speakers, a mock trial, and many more impactful insiders.

Today, we are celebrating #ThrowbackTuesday by rewinding back to our Picnic with the Partner’s event last week! What an incredible way to catch-up with community agency partner leaders and simply just “be” for a moment in time. Our UWCFA essential partners worked endlessly through the challenges presented by the Coronavirus Pandemic. Without their game-changing, impactful, essential programs, many members of the Cape Fear community in need would have difficulties getting connected to the resources needed to help them thrive.

We are incredibly grateful for the services our partner agencies provide for our neighborhoods and families, and the teams who help make it happen! There was a lot to celebrate on this special day, including Executive Director of Pender County Christian Services, Inc., Sandy Harris, and her husband, Lloyd, who celebrated 53 years of marriage, and Major Mark Craddock’s incredible legacy of Hope in the Cape Fear region through The Salvation Army of Cape Fear.

Major Mark, we are incredibly grateful for the impactful service you have selflessly done for others, as well as your unwavering dedication in building this Cape Fear community up in Hope. We will miss you as you journey on towards beginning a new chapter in South Carolina!
