Kids \'N Community Foundation to Donate $280,447
RALEIGH, NC – Doug Warf, Senior Director of Marketing for the Carolina Hurricanes and Executive Director of the Kids ‘N Community Foundation, today announced that the Kids ‘N Community Foundation has completed its spring grant process and will donate $280,447 to 26 different children’s charitable organizations in the Triangle and North Carolina. The spring grant cycle is the second of two grant cycles for the 2011-12 season, which has seen the Foundation donate $534,852 to 53 non-profit children’s organizations.

For the spring grant cycle, the Hurricanes will continue donations to many of the same organizations from 2010-11, as well as adding four new groups to the grant process. Among the new recipients is the East Durham Children's Initiative, which serves a 120-block area of East Durham and is focused on having all students in the zone graduate high school while being prepared for college. Funds from the Foundation will help 60 of the lowest performing third, fourth, and fifth graders from Y.E. Smith Elementary School attend an education-based day camp for seven weeks this summer.

The 26 spring grant recipients are: Rocking Horse Ranch Therapeutic Riding, Loaves and Fishes Ministry, Genesis Home, Miracle League of the Triangle, SEEDS (South Eastern Efforts Developing Sustainable Spaces), Wake Education Partnership, Neighbor to Neighbor, First Tee of the Triangle, Teach for America-Eastern NC, Learning Together, Winston-Salem Youth Hockey Association, The ArtsCenter, Blue Ribbon Mentor-Advocate, Ronald McDonald House-Chapel Hill, Be Active North Carolina, Junior Achievement of Eastern NC, The Daniel Center for Math and Science, Triangle Family Services, Comfort Zone Camps, Literacy Council of Wake County, Triangle Community Foundation, Children’s Flight of Hope, East Durham Children’s Initiative, InterAct-Family Violence Prevention Center, Medical Foundation of North Carolina and Raleigh Youth Hockey Association.

The Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation provides much needed funding to children’s charities and education programs throughout North Carolina. 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 more than $1 million to charitable and educational programs in North Carolina. Every member of the Hurricanes organization is actively involved in community activities and the Hurricanes take great pride in the ability to have a positive impact in our state.
