THE CAROLINAS (WMBF) – On Wednesday, Duke Energy announced they are donating $80,000 to the American Red Cross - Palmetto South Carolina Region and $20,000 to the American Red Cross – Eastern North Carolina Chapter, to help with relief efforts as a result of the catastrophic effects of the recent storm.

President of the Duke Energy Foundation, Stick Williams said, “More than 1 million Duke Energy customers were affected by the historic weather in the Carolinas this past week and thousands of employees, retirees and their families call those areas home.”

Duke Energy employees can also help by donating the American Red Cross in the company’s matching grant program. For every dollar an employee donates Duke Energy will match that dollar.

“We know that the region’s recovery continues long after we restore the power, which is why we have partnered with the Red Cross to support this effort. Quickly and effectively responding to these conditions is what they do best,” Williams said.
