local funds for local needs
Perhaps no where is the generosity of the Outer Banks community more apparent than in the Outer Banks Relief Foundation. In this wonderful holiday story, Michelle Wagner writing for the Outer Banks Voice tells the story of how three caring friends created a uniquely caring local foundation.
“John Gilliam, Ervin Bateman and Millie Ward may all have slightly different versions on how it all began more than 10 years ago, but one part they all agree on.”
The three running friends were logging miles together — somewhere on the Outer Banks — when an idea came to them to begin a foundation that would provide financial help to local residents.”
