Pamlico Pays It Forward
October 19, 2016

C
oncerned citizens are asking how they help the inland flood victims of Hurricane Matthew. Organizations in Pamlico County have created a way.

Following is a Press Release from Pamlico Community College:
On Monday representatives from Pamlico Community College, Pamlico County Government, Pamlico County Sheriff’s Department, Pamlico County School Systems, and the Pamlico County Chamber of Commerce met to discuss ways in which Pamlico County can help those impacted by Hurricane Matthew.

Pamlico Community College noticed there was a need for donation drop-off locations in this area. Instead of working as separate organizations, Pamlico County has come together as one to help coordinate the County’s disaster relief effort, naming the effort, “Pamlico Pays it Forward.”

“Pamlico County encourages our citizens to donate time, supplies, or funds to Hurricane Matthew recovery efforts in eastern North Carolina,” says Tim Buck, Pamlico County Manager. “Residents, businesses, and non -profits throughout North Carolina greatly assisted Pamlico County in our own recovery after Hurricane Irene. Likewise, this is an excellent opportunity for our County to demonstrate its support for our fellow North Carolina neighbors.”

Pamlico County has designated four donation drop-off locations:
