The backbone to any vibrant, strong, and healthy community is its ability to provide basic goods and services for the public and the connection it has with its people. While the need for basic services in the Wilmington community remains, there has been a huge increase for more services such as high quality after-school programs, substance abuse & treatment services, food support programs, & affordable housing. Furthermore, did you know there are non-profits and community-based organizations struggling day to day with various budget cuts and revenue shortages? Due to low funding streams, a competitive market, and a stagnant economy many of these organizations are finding it hard to keep their doors open. In some cases, practitioners and providers are forced with the delima of choosing to leave a profession that they care so deeply about to provide for their families. Let’s do more and show our support for the good work that our non-profits and community-based organizations are doing in the Wilmington community. Car Raffle tickets are on sale now and run until Dec. 14th, 2019.
