GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – In this week’s community spotlight, WNCT headed to Kinston where one non-profit is taking a look at what divides us as a state and then doing their part to close the gap.
The Jamie Kirk Hahn Foundation is hosting their first Gather for Good seminar Thursday in Kinston.
It’s all in hopes of connecting urban and rural communities to provide unique resources such as community gardens, educational opportunities and health partnerships.
Thursday’s meeting offers a chance for folks in the community to come out, provide feedback and focus on new developments and changes to the local community.
“Not only what can Kinston by itself do, but what can Kinston do with the support of Raleigh, the support of Winston-Salem, support of Hickory, and their surrounding communities, so how can we as a state come together, make the communities better and make the state better,” said Emma Adelman, Program Coordinator for Jamie Kirk Hahn Foundation.
The event kicks off at 6 pm and goes until 8.
It will be held at Ginger 108 in Kinston, right next to Mother Earth Brewery.
The event is also the first of a many for the Gathering for Good cause.
In October, they will meet once again to finalize a call to action and move forward with a new project.
