Bertie 4-H Receives Albemarle Regional United Way Grant
The Albemarle Regional United Way mission is to improve residents’ lives in the rural counties of northeastern North Carolina through a coordinated response that includes fundraising, certifying agencies, supporting programs, assessing needs, and serving as an information and referral service. Prior to the Covid-19 Pandemic, Bertie County 4-H applied for and received an Albemarle Regional United Way Grant in the amount of $9,000.00 to support programming for 4-Hers in Bertie County. However, due to the Governor’s and University mandates NC Extension and NC 4-H had to stop all face-to-face programming. As a result, the various NC Extension & NC 4-H programs began to develop virtual programs, meetings, and educational sessions to continue to provide services and educational content to the public. Moving forward, Bertie 4-H will utilize the funding to continue to create interactive virtual youth development programming. As the operating guidelines set forth by North Carolina State University and North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University change, Bertie 4-H will follow the guidelines to provide quality educational programs and content for the youth of Bertie County.
This will be the second year that Albemarle Regional United Way has supported Bertie County 4-H. In 2019, Bertie 4-H received funding to support youth development. These funds were used to offset the cost of programs such as 4-H Residential Camp, Northeast District 4-H Science Camp, and 4-H Congress. Bertie County would like for you to continue supporting Albemarle Regional United Way in order for them to continue their support of community agencies in the nine counties they serve.
