AgCarolina Farm Credit has announced a $3,000 donation to The Refuge of Eastern NC, an organization with a mission to provide summer camps, retreats, and school programs for young people in eastern North Carolina.
Employees have the option to participate in “A Cause a Quarter” each quarter. The quarterly campaign requires a $25 donation from participating employees to a non-profit voted on by all employees of the association. Participants are able to wear jeans each Friday of the quarter in which they participate.
Chosen by employees for the first quarter of 2021 was The Refuge of Eastern NC. With employee and Association contributions, the total donation amount is $3,000.
“AgCarolina Farm Credit’s employees are committed to being active in distributing resources throughout eastern North Carolina,” said AgCarolina CEO Dave Corum. “A Cause a Quarter is the product of an employee suggestion and has been a great way for our team to understand how we can all work together to make an impact. AgCarolina is proud to provide these funds to The Refuge of Eastern NC as they seek to make an impact on young people in our state.”
