KIDS \u2018N COMMUNITY FOUNDATION HONORED BY NC CAP

RALEIGH, N.C. (April 20, 2005)

The North Carolina Center for After-School Programs (NC CAP) has named the Carolina Hurricanes’ Kids ‘N Community Foundation the 2005 Champion of Afterschool for its efforts to improve educational opportunities for North Carolina’s students.

While the Kids ‘N Community Foundation supports a variety of community initiatives, the creation and support of after-school programs for children living in public housing has been a special mission. Working with Communities in Schools, the Hurricanes sustain Hurricanes Academy at Walnut Terrace, Wake County’s largest public housing community. Of the students enrolled in Hurricanes Academy, 85 percent improved academically this year. Similar results have been found in student achievement with after-school participants of Durham’s Oxford Manor Achievement School and Family Resource Center which is also funded by the Foundation.

“The Hurricanes have stayed involved by ensuring that we are able to sustain the existing academic and family support programs at Oxford Manor,” said Linda Love, Director of the Office of University Partnerships at North Carolina Central University. “They have shown a commitment to enhancing and enriching all of the programs and activities we do here.”

The NC CAP Champion of Afterschool award recognizes community leaders who have made exemplary contributions to after-school programs in North Carolina. The award may be given to any person or group that has displayed innovative, effective leadership for afterschool. Champions may be after-school volunteers, financial supporters or community leaders. The Kids ‘N Community Foundation provides much needed funding to children’s charities and education programs throughout North Carolina. With ongoing support from annual special events and the corporate community, the Foundation has funded scholarship programs, youth hockey, educational and literacy efforts, children’s health programs, the arts and other children’s related initiatives. Annually, the Foundation provides cash and in-kind contributions totaling nearly $1 million to charitable and educational programs in North Carolina. Every member of the Hurricanes organization is actively involved in community activities. The Hurricanes take great pride in the ability to have a positive impact in our state.
