[Raleigh, NC] AgCarolina Farm Credit is proud to announce a $3,000 donation to House of Hope of NC, a therapeutic school, home, and counseling center for hurting and vulnerable girls, ages 12-17 and their families.
Employees have the option to participate in AgCarolina’s “A Cause a Quarter” program. The quarterly campaign requires a $25 donation from participating employees to a non-profit voted on by all employees of the Association. Participants can dress casually each Friday of the quarter in which they participate.
Chosen by employees for the first quarter of 2022 was House of Hope of NC. With employee and Association contributions, the total donation amount is $3,000.
“AgCarolina Farm Credit’s employees believe it is vital for our local communities to have active and engaged citizens,” said AgCarolina CEO Dave Corum. “A Cause a Quarter is the product of an employee suggestion and has been a great way for the AgCarolina team to understand how we can make an impact in the communities we serve in eastern North Carolina. There are many great organizations throughout eastern North Carolina doing outstanding things like the folks with House of Hope of NC. AgCarolina Farm Credit, and its employees, are proud to present these funds to House of Hope of NC. It is our hope they will continue to grow and make a positive difference for hurting and vulnerable girls, and their families.”
