Coastal North Carolina Communities Come Together

New Bern, NC, September 23, 2018

As coastal North Carolina begins to recover from severe damage, flooding, and personal losses as a result of Hurricane Florence, small coastal communities become even closer.

hurricane florenceVolunteers from the Easterseals UCP New Bern office including Kathy Lewis, Lillian Burley, Pam Spain and Amie Fulcher delivered 1,000 meals to the families supported by Easterseals UCP in the areas surrounding New Bern. Families facing challenges with mental health, special needs and disabilities, had one less thing to worry about thanks to the volunteers bringing food. 

Chrislyn Wedderien, owner and chef, who has a gift for cooking for large groups of people, opened up her heart and her kitchen.  She wanted everyone to have a hot home cooked meal. Chrislyn intends to keep the hot meals coming with the support of donations and volunteers.
