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.
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.
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.
As Hurricane Florence approaches, we have gathered critical information about emergency contact for federal and local agencies, how to prepare, what to expect, and notices about school closings.
