RALEIGH, NC—Doug Warf, Community Relations Manager for the Carolina Hurricanes and Executive Director of the Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation, announced today that the Kids ‘N Community Foundation has completed its spring and summer grant process, donating $166,000 to 11 different local charitable organizations that benefit the children of the Triangle.

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 of over $1 million to charitable and educational programs in North Carolina, such as Wake County Communities in Schools, Danialle Karmanos’ Work it Out Program, YMCA of the Triangle Area and the Boys and Girls Club. 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.
