CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - Panthers head coach Ron Rivera announced on Monday that the team is supporting an initiative to benefit victims of Florence across the Carolinas.
The team will purchase and wear t-shirts in support of an interstate organization.The proceeds from the shirts, which are just one piece of the #CAREolinas initiative, will support Florence relief efforts in both North and South Carolina.
The #CAREolinas initiative is a collaborative partnership between both states’ tourism departments-- Visit North Carolina and Discover South Carolina. It's an effort meant to unify the states and help connect and amplify recovery efforts.
There are several different ways people can participate in the initiative, including purchasing a shirt at CAREolinas.com made in partnership with Charlotte-based Recover Brands, donating directly to each state's official relief funds-- the North Carolina Disaster Relief Fund and One SC Fund, and by joining the #CAREolinas Facebook Group.
