Recently, The South Carolina Education Oversight Committee awarded a community block grant of $163,500 to the Neighborhood Outreach Connection (NOC) and the Beaufort County School District to establish an after-school and virtual summer learning program at the Parkview and Marsh Point Apartments. Atlantic Housing Foundation is providing rent-free space at its Parkview Apartments for NOC’s programs.

Recently, William Achurch, Market President of the Wells Fargo Bank presented the Neighborhood Outreach Connection with a $5,000 check to assist with the opening of NOC’s Program Centers at these two apartment complexes.

The check from Wells Fargo Bank will double in value, as an anonymous donor has pledged $50,000 in matching funds to NOC once the organization raises $50,000 over and above the community block grant funds. The check from Wells Fargo Bank brings the amount raised by NOC to $22,000. These additional funds will finance Year II costs that are associated with
this program.
