On Wednesday, October 26, GoTriangle, WRAL-TV, the United Way of the Triangle, and the Raleigh-Durham International Airport partnered to fill a Storm Relief Bus with needed items for families affected by Hurricane Matthew. By 7 that night, the three buses and two vans at Carter-Finley Stadium were filled to the brim with canned goods and cleaning supplies for families affected by the storm.

Thanks to the Triangle’s generosity, the Storm Relief buses traveled into eastern North Carolina on Thursday, October 27, stopping in Nash, Edgecombe, Wilson, and Johnston counties.  Items were supplied to the United Way of Tar River Region in Rocky Mount, the United Way Food Drive in Wilson, and the Partnership for Children and Boys and Girls Clubs of Johnston County.

GoTriangle thanks its partners and the wonderful Triangle community for the outpouring of love and support.
