WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — It is that time of year where people less fortunate than others need help the most.
That is why thousands of members of the Cape Fear Realtors worked throughout the year to be able to donated 8,000 pounds of food Friday afternoon.
Dozens of employees stopped by Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard, a Wilmington organization that feeds the hungry, to drop off the supplies. They donated tons of cheerios, oatmeal, canned goods, and much more.
On this dreary day they hoped to bring some cheer to many across the community.
“I hope that the community sees that people do care,” Cape Fear Realtors President, Neal Johnson said. “We care about less fortunate people, not just us as realtors but everyone in the community cares because some of these donations probably did come from people from outside of my organization.”
Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard feeds more than 3,000 people each month in the Wilmington area.
Today’s donations, worth $7,000, will be distributed to those in need throughout the holiday season.
