By Staff Report, posted 4 days ago

On Apr. 17, 2024, the United Way of North Carolina presented their Spirit of N.C. Awards to organizations from around the state who not only demonstrated excellence in their United Way campaign but are building a philanthropic culture community-wide.

PWC earned this year’s award for Impactful and Engaging Campaign Event or Activity – a Meal Packing Event that officially kicked off its 2023 pledge campaign.  Eighty employees helped pack over 35,000 meals in just under an hour that were used by three food pantries: Fayetteville Urban Ministries, Armed Services YMCA at Fort Liberty and Catholic Charities.  PWC’s 2023 campaign raised $138,678, a 5 percent increase over 2022, and surpassed its campaign goal of $135,000. PWC also had a record number of leadership givers with 52. The meal-packing participants contributed 36 percent of PWC’s overall campaign ($49,000+) and added five new leadership givers. 

It is the 18th Spirit Award PWC has earned since 2003.  PWC has earned more Spirit Awards than any other organization in the state.
