RALEIGH, N.C., October 2, 2018- As Hurricane Florence approached the North Carolina coastline, Delta Dental of North Carolina took action to support its families, friends, clients, providers and colleagues who were going to be impacted by the storm. Seeing the immediate need, Delta Dental of North Carolina donated 1,500 toothbrushes to the Triangle American Red Cross, which were distributed to area hurricane evacuation shelters.
 
The devastation left by Hurricane Florence hits close to home, as many of the communities Delta Dental of North Carolina serves have been affected and are working to rebuild. Delta Dental of North Carolina has donated $10,000 to the North Carolina Disaster Relief Fund to help those directly impacted by the storm. Additionally, other member companies of the Delta Dental Plans Association from across the country (including Arkansas, California, Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, and Tennessee) have also contributed to help those in need in the Carolinas, bringing total contributions to $112,000. These contributions were spread among the North Carolina Disaster Relief Fund, American Red Cross and Coastal Community Foundation of South Carolina.
 
“We know that many of our fellow citizens are struggling to recover in the aftermath of the storm. It’s important for us to support the ongoing relief efforts,” said Curt Ladig, CEO of Delta Dental of North Carolina.
