KIDS \'N COMMUNITY PARTNERS WITH LOCAL GROUPS
Foundation will award more than $200,000 in grants

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—Nov. 16, 2006

RALEIGH, NC—Chris Diamond, manager of community relations for the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the Kids ‘N Community Foundation has approved more than $200,000 in grants to local non-profit organizations. Programs that will be receiving funds include Boys and Girls Clubs, Triangle Family Services, YMCA, and a variety of other organizations geared toward education and children. These groups provide a wide range of services such as after-school homework help, leadership expansion, protecting victims of domestic violence, teaching healthy decision-making and developing social and problem-solving skills.

“The board members are excited to partner with these worthwhile organizations,” said Diamond. “Aiding their efforts helps the Foundation make a difference in the community.”

Along with the organizations listed above, funds will also be awarded to Boy Scouts of America, Hurricanes Academy, Children with Vision Tutorial Services, Durham Public Education Network, Loaves and Fishes Ministry and Reins from Above. The Kids ‘N Community Foundation provides much needed funding to children’s charities and education programs throughout North Carolina. With ongoing support from players, 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.
