NACCO Materials Handling Group Inc. presented the United Way of Pitt County a $39,000 check during East Carolina University’s final home football game against Marshall on Nov. 23.
As a sponsor of ECU athletics, NMHG made the donation based on the total number of ECU touchdowns during the 2012 season.
“We’re thrilled with another strong season by the Pirates, helping us to make this donation to United Way of Pitt County,” Brett Schemerhorn, vice president of marketing for NMHG, said. “We’re excited about the start of the basketball schedule and look forward to baseball to be able to further support and strengthen our community through United Way.”
NMHG is beginning its third year in partnership with ECU athletics to benefit the United Way and has donated more than $200,000 through the program.
“The NMHG/ECU partnership is an excellent example of community building and help for those in need,” Jim Cieslar, executive director for the United Way of Pitt County, said. “This partnership has enabled the United Way of Pitt County to move forward on its community impact goals of decreasing high school drop-out rates, lowering community unemployment rates and providing a safety-net of basic needs services.
“The program does this not only through the funding it has generated, but also through the exposure it has created for United Way at ECU athletic events. We sincerely appreciate all that both NMHG and ECU Athletics does to ‘Live United’ by building and strengthening our community here in Pitt County through United Way.”
