Hurricane Florence devastated parts of the Carolinas in September and many communities are still struggling to rebuild. To help in the relief efforts, Delta Dental of North Carolina has donated $10,000 to the North Carolina Disaster Relief Fund to help those directly impacted by the storm. Additionally, other member companies of the Delta Dental Plans Association from across the country have also contributed to help those in need in the Carolinas, bringing total contributions to $110,000. These contributions were spread among the North Carolina Disaster Relief Fund, American Red Cross and Coastal Community Foundation of South Carolina. In addition, Delta Dental of North Carolina donated 1,500 toothbrushes to the Triangle American Red Cross, which were distributed to area hurricane evacuation shelters.
“We know that many of our fellow citizens are struggling to recover in the aftermath of the storm. It’s important for us to support the ongoing relief efforts,” says Curt Ladig, CEO of Delta Dental of North Carolina. Learn more at deltadental.com.
