The fall grant cycle is the first of two grant cycles for the 2011-2012 season. We wanted to highlight a few of the programs that the Hurricanes will be supporting this year:
  • Additions to the Center Ice Exhibit at Marbles Kids Museum.
  • Sponsoring two transplant suites this at the Ronald McDonald House of Durham to provide a home-away-from-home for families of children recovering from an organ transplant.
  • “Stock the Pantry” for the Ronald McDonald House of Winston-Salem and provide meals to families staying at the Ronald McDonald house while their children are undergoing treatment.
  • The Durham Nativity School will purchase e-readers for every student along with four e-books, significantly increasing their library’s resources while integrating new technology.
  • Two scholarships to inner-city, at risk girls (ages 11-18) to The CORRAL Riding Academy to learn equine knowledge and skills, while developing the behaviors, attitudes and skills necessary for success in life beyond horses.
  • The New Voices Foundation will establish the learning library/teach center in their pilot year. In partnership with the Center for Literacy and Disability Studies at UNC-Chapel Hill and four school systems in the Triangle, The Storm Zone Learning Lab will be a central part of the assessment and educational process and will support the transition and inclusion need of children with severe disabilities.
The Carolina Hurricanes will host participants, staff and volunteers from each of these organizations on November 29, when the Canes take on the Florida Panthers. There will be a special presentation during the first intermission.
