Message from Senator Becky Gilbird
The Diversity Committee is coordinating a Holiday service project with Pitt County Social Services to provide items for those in need. We are sponsoring and 11 year old girl and 12 year old boy (brother and sister) in foster care; We are also sponsoring two ladies who are wards of the state (they are unable to care for themselves and do not have family).
The gifts do not have to be wrapped, but if you do, please indicate what it is so it can go to the correct person. Please note that gift cards (for example to Walmart, JCPenney) and donations are also appreciated! The social workers can use them to get other needed items. You may also share this service project with your constituents!
