GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – On Wednesday the Carolina Panthers announced their charities program is set to donate $250,000 to aid high school athletic programs in North and South Carolina that have been impacted by Hurricane Matthew and the storm’s aftermath.
High schools can apply for up to $20,000 in grant funding and applications must be submitted by Nov. 11 to be considered.
“The Carolina Panthers hope this grant funding will enable schools, and the communities they serve, to return to a sense of normalcy by helping meet the important basic needs of high school athletic programs,” said Riley Fields, Panthers director of community relations.
Eastern North Carolina was especially hit hard as dozens of schools have already postponed Friday’s games due to damage that has come and is expected to amount as a result of Hurricane Matthew.
