Community participation

We continue to support local arts with annual donations including the North Carolina Museum of Art and Raleigh Little Theatre and local charities such as North Carolina Senior Games, STOMP the Monster North Carolina and American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure. In addition, we hosted our annual food drive to support the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. Thank you to the support of our clients, we are pleased that we collected about 600 pounds of food which will supply about 620 meals.

I like to run and swim and I enjoy literature and history.
