RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — This November, CBS North Carolina introduced the 46th 3 Degree Guarantee charity since the program started in 2014.
The CBS North Carolina Storm Team also crossed the $100,000 mark for lifetime donations in November with plenty of great stories along the way.
The first charity ever selected was Big Brothers, Big Sisters in February of 2014, since then we’ve met some pretty amazing humans and animals along the way.
Each day, when the CBS North Carolina Storm Team gets the forecast correct within three degrees, the station donates $50 to a selected monthly charity. Allen Kelly & Company Heating and Air then matches that donation for a total of $100 each correct day.
At the end of each month, the grand total is handed over to the charity for them to use in their mission of helping the community.
The 3 Degree Guarantee has introduced us to some well-known charities, like the American Heart Association, but also to some charities you may have never heard of before, like Seth’s Wish from Fayetteville.
There are groups that help when life is just beginning, like the March of Dimes and others comfort at the end of life, like Duke Homecare and Hospice.
There are a lot of people to feed and a lot of people to cure, but since the beginning, the goal of the 3 Degree Guarantee has been to help those in our community who are helping others.
