Oxner + Permar Charity Spotlight: Rock and Wrap It Up

Community

At Oxner + Permar, we’re always excited to support a good cause. We like to do our part to give back to the community when we have a chance. I want to take this opportunity to tell you about one of the groups we work with, to try to get the word out, and bring some attention to a good cause.

 

Rock and Wrap It Up is a very impressive organization that we partner with. They take unused food from schools and distribute it to the hungry.
More than 50% of children in Guilford County are on free or reduced-cost lunch programs. This means all too often these children can’t afford to bring snacks for later on in their day. Rock and Wrap It Up saves unused packaged items from school breakfast so that these children can have them later in the day. Food that would otherwise be thrown away gets eaten, and children who would otherwise go hungry get to eat. It’s a win-win!

 

As part of a 25-year-old nonprofit, Rock and Wrap It Up works hard to discover and vet agencies who are able to recover wholesale food and redirect it to those in need rather than sending it to landfills.

 

They are diligent about following the USDA and Health Department of North Carolina’s guidelines to ensure that the food is safe and stored under the correct conditions in order for it to be passed along to those in need. The organization also hosts the School Wrap program, which encourages students to get involved with saving food and sending it to those in need. This program has served more than 100,000 meals.

 

We encourage you to find out more about Rock and Wrap It Up and contribute to this wonderful organization if you have the time or resources.

Oxner + Permar Charity Spotlight: NC MedAssist

Community

At Oxner + Permar, we’re always looking for opportunities to give back to the community. So this month we thought we’d spotlight a couple of the charities that we support. They’re wonderful causes, very deserving of attention.

 

The first charity we’re highlighting is NC MedAssist. NC MedAssist is a great program devoted to helping North Carolinians be able to afford the medical care that they need. Even with health insurance, certain medical treatments and medicines can be very expensive. That’s why NC MedAssist is devoted to ensuring that everyone has access to the care that they need.

 

They believe that no one should have to choose between purchasing food or affording medication. One way they help is through their Free Pharmacy Program. The current eligibility requirements for this program are:

 

  • You must be a NC resident
  • You must be living at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level
  • You must not qualify for Medicaid, Veterans Administration, or private health insurance.

 

NC MedAssist also has a senior care program that works to provide alternate options for seniors whose Medicare Part D prescription benefits run out during the year.

 

Their Over the Counter (OTC) Medicine Program provides free OTC medicines to families in need — it’s essentially like a food bank but for medicine!

 

To find out more about any of these programs or about how you can contribute, visit the NC MediAssist website. This is a really great program that’s close to our hearts. We sponsor one of their giveaway days every year, and we encourage you to get involved if you’re able!

 

If you’re able to contribute to NC MediAssist, we invite you to visit their website to find out more about how you can get involved!

Our first workers compensation, personal injury and social security office on the coast

Community

We’re excited to have just opened our first office on the North Carolina coast in the Landfall Business Center in Wilmington.

Countless numbers of clients and attorneys have made the drive back and forth between Raleigh and Wilmington, but those days are over. We’ll be meeting you in the Landfall Executive Suites at 1213 Culbreth Dr. That’s just off Military Cutoff Road on the right, two blocks north of I74/Eastwood Road.
