Following up on Positively Carolina success stories

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – This week’s Positively Carolina follows up on some of the success stories shared on the program over the last month.

Daughters of Worth:

The Daughters of Worth works with teenage girls in Pitt County to help them understand their value to society.

The organization operates through the Boys and Girls Club, and they had been working to send six of their participants to a leadership conference in Charlotte.

Now, all six of the girls have been sponsored, and the Daughters of Worth will be making their way to the Queen City for the conference.

The group is looking for more mentors so they can expand their reach in Greenville.

Marla Webb:

Marla Webb was just days away from her trip to Africa when Positively Carolina introduced her to viewers back in August.

Webb’s plan was to take donated scarves to women in Swaziland that are responsible for the young orphans in the village.

These women, affectionately known as aunties, are often displaced from their own families.

Webb sent photos, and reports the women accepted the kind gesture of scarves from women across eastern North Carolina with great joy.

This gift could not have been possible without the help of the eastern North Carolina community.

Pilots N Paws:

Pilots N Paws helps transport homeless animals to areas they can be adapted.

Positively Carolina checked in with some of the dogs that were taken out of Eastern North Carolina on our special Pilots n Paws trip to New Jersey.

The majority of the dogs are still available for adoption through their respective rescues, but it looks like they are enjoying their stay a lot more while waiting for their ‘fur-ever’ homes.
