We are selling raffle tickets for a chance to win this beautiful artwork by Anthony Fife! One lucky person will have their name drawn at random on July 18th! All proceeds from the raffle go directly to the purchase of a 10,000 sq foot building that will provide shelter to foster children ages 12-18 in Eastern North Carolina. In this part of the state, there are more foster children than there are safe places available. The Kelly Children’s Home will be the very first children’s group home to those in need. https://kelly-childrens-home-inc.networkforgood.com/events/21745-art-raffle-for-the-kelly-children-s-home

Albemarle Commission’s Senior Nutrition Program is seeking Meals on Wheels volunteers for routes in Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Dare, Gates, Hyde, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Tyrrell and Washington counties in North Carolina. There is an urgent need for volunteers in Chowan and Pasquotank counties, who have a waiting list for potential clients due to lack of volunteers. Routes start at 11 am, Monday through Friday. Each route takes about an hour to complete. Volunteering as little as one day a month makes a huge impact for our home bound seniors. For more information on becoming a volunteer, please contact Laura Rollinson, Volunteer Coordinator, at (252)-404-7091 or email@example.com.
