News and Notes: Rivercity Achievement Center helps with tornado relief in Elizabeth City

8-Tornado20140502 102437 1smEarly in April, Elizabeth City, N.C. was hit by a tornado causing damage to homes and businesses in the area. People we support at Rivercity Achievement Center saw the damages and wanted to do something to help those in their community.

The group decided to volunteer at a fundraiser for two families who lost their homes in the storm. The fundraiser was organized by two Elizabeth City residents and they partnered with a catering company to sell dinners at a local high school with the proceeds going toward the home repairs.

A group from Rivercity Achievement volunteered by holding signs and bagging dinners. More than 900 plates were sold.

Rivercity also purchased relief items and made a donation to local organizations assembling care packages for families affected by the tornado.
