CarolinaEast Foundation gives $140k to thirteen nonprofits and programs

NEW BERN, N.C. (WITN) – An Eastern Carolina hospital foundation has awarded grants to 13 nonprofits to help support their causes.

The CarolinaEast Foundation hosted a check-passing event for the nonprofits and programs. The checks totaled $140,000 from their second grant cycle of 2023.
