Landfall Foundation Grant Disbursement Following Hurricane Florence

Posted by

In the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, the Landfall Foundation is immediately distributing funds of $388,000 to 88 charity grant recipients, rather than waiting until November, to facilitate their assistance post hurricane.

Organizations are on the front lines now helping the many that are in need, some include Nourish NC, Food Bank of Central and Eastern Carolinas, DREAMS of Wilmington, the Diaper Bank, Acts of Kindness Project, and the Brigade Boys and Girls Club.

The Landfall Foundation will continue to extend support to greater Wilmington area non-profit organizations through their grant process resulting in valuable contributions to smaller organizations that are often underfunded, making a major impact on the vital needs of our community.

Clean Air in Wilmington

Posted by

Wilmington has been ranked a one of the top cities for clean air. Only 6 cities received the highest rating in the study conducted by the American Lung Association.

Wilmington had zero days with ozone and high particle pollution between 2013 and 2015. The whole of Eastern North Carolina has proven to be a healthy place to live, with low air pollution levels. Greenville, Morehead City, and New Bern did not have any days with levels reaching the dangerous air pollution level.

North Carolina has been working on increasing air quality since 1970, when the Clean Air Act was passed. Since then there have been amendments to the original bill as well as the Clean Smokestacks Act, which has cut the state’s emissions from 245,000 tons to 56,000 tons in just 11 years.

The healthy air quality translates to healthy people. There are less asthma attacks, respiratory issues, and decreased heart issues.
