Giving to charity is crucial for economic prosperity, happiness, and the success of our people. But for too long, only the upper class has been incentivized to give to charitable organizations. With the Universal Charitable Giving Act we help support the great work of the faith-based and charitable groups working hard to make a difference in our community.
For more than 20 years, Veteran J.R. Poe has been taking therapy dogs into nursing homes, hospitals, cancer centers, Veterans Affairs Medical Centers, churches, and prisons across North Carolina. Every day he wakes up and immediately looks for ways to serve others, traveling all across the state to bring warmth, love, and hope to someone the moment they need it the most.
I have always valued the importance of HBCUs. With more than 100 HBCUs across the nation – and eleven here in North Carolina, they are an integral part of our higher education system. On a more personal note, my wife, Kelly, is a graduate of Winston-Salem State University and has found success as a nurse practitioner, which she attributes in part to the strong education she received. I believe it is as important as ever to have Republicans engage with HBCUs.
Congress has passed laws that provide resources to confront this epidemic, but as we learned in our Opioid Crisis Tour throughout North Carolina, more action is clearly needed. We will remain committed to working with local law enforcement, first responders, and local government to stop the overwhelming hardship this is causing to the families of our community.
"Earning the titles ‘America’s Pastor’ and ‘North Carolina’s favorite son,’ a small-town pastor from North Carolina, who grew up on a dairy farm, preached the love and name of Jesus Christ. Never wavering, he changed the world – bringing thousands of lives to salvation and eternal life. For me, Rev. Graham will always be remembered for his focus on redemption and the idea that there is limitless hope, opportunity and freedom for every human life."
"In service to our country, in perseverance, and in service to our community, J.R. Poe has shown what it truly means to be a hero. Every day he wakes up and immediately looks for ways to serve others, traveling all across the state to bring warmth, love, and hope to someone the moment they need it the most. J.R. and Buddy, working through NC Pet Partners are improving the lives of thousands of North Carolinians and we are extremely grateful for his efforts."
