NCFB Employees Raise Funds for Clare's Run for a Reason
NC Farm Bureau employees and community members from the Triangle area and beyond came together to show support for Clare's Run for a Reason. The event was organized to honor Clare, who died suddenly and unexpectedly at the age of 19 months. Proceeds from the event benefitted the Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC) program.
The first annual Clare's Run for a Reason was held on June 25, 2011 and was an overwhelming success. With over 350 attendees and $17,000 raised - the event was a wonderful tribute to Clare, and all the folks who do great work at the SUDC organization. Thank you to all those who showed their support!
NC Farm Bureau Home Office employees showed their support by raising a $1322 donation for SUDC. This contribution, along with the money raised at the Clare's Run for a Reason event will help research, support, and raise awareness for this great cause.

April Tornado Relief
The month of April was a devastating one for many of our members, friends and neighbors across the state of North Carolina.
To show their concern and support of those impacted by these storms, employees in the NCFB home office raised $4,295 for the NC Baptist Men to assist with area Tornado Relief efforts. This was accomplished through voluntary contributions during the last week of April and first week of May.
NC Baptist Men is a local nonprofit group that has moved around the state to help victims clean up, make repairs and provide meals. They were recognized as one of the top four groups in WRAL and UNC-TV's all day fundraising event to benefit storm relief efforts on April 20, 2011.

2010 Fall Litter Sweep Campaign
A Certificate of Appreciation was issued to NC Farm Bureau for its involvement in the Governor's 2010 Fall Litter Sweep campaign.
Litter Sweep is a statewide roadside litter cleanup drive sponsored by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT).
The Governor of North Carolina issues a proclamation prior to each cleanup to encourage North Carolina citizens, businesses, local governments, civic groups and Adopt-A-Highway (AAH) volunteers to participate in making our state clean, green and beautiful.
The Litter Sweep Campaign helps improve roadway safety, roadside appearance and the state's overall environment.
Joye Keith, NCFB's Adopt-a-Highway Coordinator, led a team of NCFB employees as they collected trash alongside a two-mile stretch of road in Wake County.
NCFB clean-up teams also work on roadside clean-up efforts three other times throughout the year - including during the NCDOT-sponsored Spring Litter Sweep campaign.
NCFB Employees Raise Funds for Life Changing Transplant Foundation
