This Holiday season, Bluewater agents, employees, and owners were able to come together and help families in need along Carteret County. We all understand how fortunate we are to be able to live, work and play in this beautiful community- but also how important it is to help those that are less fortunate. We agreed that families suffering from the effects of Hurricane Florence were a high-priority to assist, and that a monetary contribution could make things a little easier for a lot of families as Thanksgiving and Christmas come and go.
Food Pantries at area high schools were brought up as a great resource for young adults to discreetly take home food and help contribute to family meals. There’s no charge, or sign-up fee for the usage of these pantries, and the school’s Exceptional Children programs go to purchase and stock these food banks when the funds arise. As a team, we came together in about one week and raised over $1200. The contribution was matched by the gracious owners of Bluewater and we were able to donate $1,000 to both East & West Carteret High Schools, with an additional $211 going to the Marine Science & Technology Early College in Morehead City.
