PotashCorp-Aurora News Release
Aurora – On Dec. 19, PotashCorp-Aurora made a $10,000 donation to Eagle’s Wings. Sally Love, Eagle’s Wings Executive Director, accepted the check on behalf of the non-profit food bank and noted that the donation “took her breath away!”
PotashCorp-Aurora, Manager of Public Affairs, Ray McKeithan stated, “In similar, but different ways, our two organizations serve the same purpose. As the world’s largest crop nutrient company, PotashCorp’s mission is to help feed the world. Eagle’s Wings is offering sustenance to those who need it most in our small world, right here in eastern North Carolina.”
Eagle’s Wings’ purpose is to minister to Beaufort County residents by providing food to the impoverished. They are the largest food pantry in the county, and provide assistance each week to those in need. They also distribute fresh vegetables which have been grown in fields across the state. Applicants are required to bring income and expenditure records to caseworkers who also provide counseling in areas of money management and budget preparation. Families may come to Eagle’s Wings for food once a month.
Eagle’s Wings Executive Director, Sally Love said, “Our deepest thanks to PotashCorp-Aurora for their generous donation to our food pantry. These funds will provide groceries to Beaufort County families throughout the winter and spring. This comes at a time when the need is sharply increasing. We are so grateful for the support PotashCorp-Aurora has given to us and those in need in this County.”
PotashCorp is the world’s largest crop nutrient company and plays an integral role in global food production. PCS Phosphate Company, Inc. (PotashCorp-Aurora) produces phosphate products for agricultural, animal nutrition and industrial uses, has more than 900 employees and contributes to eastern North Carolina’s economy through purchasing and community investment.
