Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC

The Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC is asking for monetary donations rather then food at this time. The Food Bank maintains focus on acquiring shelf-stable food items at this time so that we can support families and seniors for the long haul during COVID-19.  With monetary resources, we can purchase the food items most-need and provide them to our community’s most vulnerable. “

Jeff Gordon Chevy Teams Up with Enterprise and Wilmington Hammerheads to #DayItForward To Oasis NC Students

Help Us BUY THE BUS! For Local Non-Profit Center for Autistic Children

Featured Img

A Leap Year gives us a whole extra day just once every four years. This Leap Day (February 29th, 2016), Chevrolet launched a campaign asking: “What would you do to #DayItForward?”

“Time is such a precious commodity and having an extra day this year presents an amazing opportunity for all of us to do something impactful,” said Paul Edwards, Chevrolet vice president of Marketing. “The Chevy team is going to take those extra hours and put them towards doing unexpected acts of kindness for people – something that we hope others will embrace and repeat.”

Upon hearing about this campaign, Jeff Gordon Chevrolet came across this story through a local news outlet that inspired what we could do to #DayItForward. The Oasis NC Day School is a local non-profit center for children with autism that makes regular trips around the city of Wilmington to help the kids learn more and boost their social skills. Currently, their only method of transportation is the teachers’ personal vehicles, forcing them to take multiple cars with only 3-4 kids in each one. In order to expand the range of activities for the kids, Oasis set up a GoFundMe page to help raise funds to afford a school bus.

In an effort to make a memorable day for these kids, Jeff Gordon Chevrolet reached out to two existing partners, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Wilmington Hammerheads Youth Soccer for a day of fun (and pizza) at the Hammerheads’ indoor soccer facility. It turned out so much better than we could have asked and the kids just had a blast, as you can see from the photos below. The local news station also came out to do a follow-up story on the school’s fundraising efforts.

Of course, letting the kids play somewhere new for just one day won’t get them a bus. So Jeff Gordon Chevrolet set up a plan to help campaign for their cause and meet their goal a little quicker…
