Pelham Volunteer Fire Department, 2020 CFDRR Competitive Grant Recipient

According to PVFD: We at the Pelham Volunteer Fire Department are very appreciative of the grant we received for this grant cycle.  With this grant, we were able to purchase eight new sets of gear to replace aging or worn out gear.  The gear we purchased is lighter weight and has barriers to defend against carcinogens produced in the effects of modern construction after fire.

NC MedAssist, 2020 CFDRR Competitive Grant Recipient

According to NCMA: The purpose of this funding was to provide free prescription medication for low-income, uninsured residents in Caswell County. Funding from CFDRR allowed us to serve 21 patients and dispense 324 prescriptions with a value of $126,436.48. This funding came at a crucial time, as many of our patients are in the high-risk category for contracting COVID-19.  Thanks to this funding opportunity, our patients were able to receive their medication, mailed directly to their homes, decreasing their likelihood of exposure to the virus. NC MedAssist is incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have partnered with CFDRR this past year, as we are seeing more people in need of our services than ever before. Without this funding, we do not believe we could have been as successful in our outcomes as we were.
