Monarch Contributes $465,000 in Service Hours
Last August, Hurricane Irene swept fiercely through the eastern United States. The path the storm blazed resulted in millions of dollars of damage, thousands of people without power, hundreds of homes destroyed and abandoned, and sadly, claimed 45 lives.
The vast devastation left by the tropical storm in eastern North Carolina prompted Monarch’s Beach Club of Dare County to help their coastal neighbors in need. Immediately following the storm, Beach Club members contacted local agencies and found ways to support their communities. They delivered 36 meals daily and numerous cases of water to individuals and families impacted by the storm.
