Donations to NCPAF

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014
Hil Peel and Cheryl McDowell Lewis of The Hardwood Store of N.C. in Gibsonville recently made a $250 donation to NCPAF, Inc. This is one of the largest individual donations received by NCPAF, Inc. and all of the money will be used to buy, enhance or preserve public access for the citizens of North Carolina in perpetuity. The next time you stop in, please thank them on behalf of everyone who uses our treasured public waters and lands.
Through January, 2014, NCPAF, Inc. has donated $3,656 toward the purchase of Oak Island Pier and upgrades to the town’s boat ramps. Another $4,000 has been donated to the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission for upgrades or new facilities at Fort Fisher, Hampstead, Jacksonville, Blounts Creek, Sunset Beach and Sutton Lake boating access areas.
Sixteen ramps have also been adopted by individuals and groups through NCPAF’s cooperative agreement with the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission’s Engineering and Lands Management Section. These citizens help free up the time and money Conservation Technicians would otherwise spend cleaning up the ramps. Instead, their resources will be used to create more public access opportunities.
All donations to NCPAF, Inc. are tax deductible.
Happy Hunting, Fishing and Boating
Mike Marsh, Chairmain, NCPAF, Inc.
