Plain View Community Coalition receives SECU Foundation grant for strategic planning
Low-resourced residents to benefit from expanded health and wellness outreach
RALEIGH, N.C. (July 19, 2023) — Plain View Community Coalition (PVCC) recently received a $40,000 grant from SECU Foundation to help further its mission to promote outreach and improve access to health, wellness, and recreation activities for low-resourced youth, adults, and the elderly. PVCC provides oversight for community center facilities, functions, and activities in the school-based community in the Dunn area.
“PVCC was created out of necessity when the local elementary school was relocated. The community center and accompanying board was created to determine a new use and sustainability of the existing building and property,” said David Core, PVCC board chair. “The SECU Foundation grant will allow the board to receive best-in-class consulting for our immediate board and community center structure. The funding also will support the development of a long-term strategic plan to ensure sustainability of the community center and park for generations to come.”
“We are so pleased to support PVCC to further their mission for improved health and wellness,” said Thomas Suddarth, SECU Goldsboro-West Ash Street Branch senior vice president. “Recreational amenities such as community centers and parks are services that bring great value to life within a community. We hope that the Foundation’s grant empowers PVCC to reach even more and continue making a lasting impact on the lives of those in the Sampson County area.”
