On the Local Level Spring 2017
Check out happenings from Farm Bureaus across the state this spring:
The Randolph County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee chooses a community outreach project each year to coincide with the holiday season to benefit residents of Randolph County. This year, while planning the annual Christmas project, the Women’s Committee members were made aware of the devastation in Eastern North Carolina caused by flooding from Hurricane Matthew – in particular, the damage at Kennedy Home in Kinston, a facility operated by Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina. Kennedy Home provides a home for children who are suffering due to family crisis, abuse or neglect. Although Kennedy Home is not in Randolph County, the committee decided to use their funds to help the facility rebuild. The Randolph County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee delivered a check for $5,000 to Kennedy Home so that the children who were displaced from the home in the wake of Hurricane Matthew, and the children that will come after them, will have a safe haven once again.
