At times that might mean you’re patiently waiting for the blessing or to be called to the buffet line. The good news is you’ll have a seat, music and stories to listen to and new friends to meet!


Seating opens at noon and the program begins at 1. Do your best to be there on time!

North Carolina Disaster Relief Fund (NCDRF) Process


Through an established process, NCDRF awards grant funding to member organizations of NC Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NCVOAD) www.ncvoad.org who are engaged in long-term recovery efforts. Grant funds are used by the organizations to purchase building materials needed to repair and/or rebuild homes that have been damaged and/or destroyed by the disaster. The homes are owned by individuals with insufficient or no home insurance. The grant requires funding be used solely for purchasing building materials; the NCVOAD organization must utilize volunteers to accomplish the necessary work. The funds do not pay for any overhead costs such as salaries, but just a small credit card processing fee which varies by the amount donated and the credit card issuer.


The United Way of North Carolina serves as the fiscal agent for the Relief Fund. This allows the use of their 501c3 status, therefore NCDRF donations are tax-deductible.
