Over 2,000 pounds of non-perishable food items were donated across Carteret, Craven, Jones and Pamlico counties during the V103.3 and United Way of Coastal Carolina’s Camp-Out-Hunger event that took place April 17th – 19th. Throughout the event, Marc and Amy - morning DJs at V103.3 - camped out in a recreational vehicle donated by Port City Motors of Morehead City.
According to the US Department of Agriculture, 62,000 individuals in the Coastal Carolina area are food insecure and of those 21,000 are children. The non-perishable food items were donated to Religious Community Services, Pamlico County Fishes and Loaves Outreach, Martha’s Mission and Jones County Senior Center.
United Way of Coastal Carolina would like to thank all the folks who donated food and also V103.3, Family Tire & Auto Service, Bojangles, and Port City Motors for sponsoring the event.
