WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Several organizations joined forces at Wilmington International Airport to help feed government workers Friday morning.
United Way teamed up with Nourish NC to provide food for families of federal employees who are in need at the airport.
United Way is an organization that funds different human service agencies that help people in need. It helps create opportunities in the community that can improve peoples’ lives.
“Folks that we’re feeding today are federal employees that work at the airport; so FAA, TSA and other federal employees who have not had a paycheck in some time. We’re looking to provide the families with food,” said CEO and President of The United Way Cape Fear Area Craig Heim.
Heim says that any time there are people in need, there are always organizations like United Way ready to step forward and help.
