As we continue to navigate through these unprecedented times, Catalyst is committed to taking precautions around not only the health and safety of our staff and their families, but also our communities, customers, and patients.
In addition to following the CDC’s recommendations, we have created our very own Catalyst masks, which we would like to share with all of you. In hopes of helping those in need, we are asking for a minimum donation of $5 per mask. All donations will go to NourishNC and Family Promise of the Lower Cape Fear.
NourishNC is a non-profit organization that provides hungry children with healthy food, empowering them to succeed in the classroom and in their communities. Our very own Chief Financial Officer, Patti McNamara, is on the board at NourishNC and has seen firsthand the impact made by the organization. In the current COVID environment, NourishNC is feeding 1,400 kids on the Backpack Program through pickup at the site while schools are closed and thousands of other kids through partnerships with other local nonprofits.
Family Promise of the Lower Cape Fear provides one of the only transitional housing options in the tri-county Wilmington, NC area for families who are victims of domestic violence and housing insecure families with children. Melissa Church, Catalyst’s Chief Strategy Officer, serves on the organization’s board. By being a resource for families in need, Family Promise of the Lower Cape Fear helps individuals seek jobs, housing, healthcare, and other resources necessary for independent living.
To donate and receive a mask, please fill out out the following form. Please Note: All Catalyst staff will be receiving a face mask by mail the week of August 3rd. Orders for any additional masks can be placed below.
