Every year, Wake County ABC gives approximately $5 million dollars to organizations providing programs that research, educate, and treat those with alcohol and substance abuse.  As we go through the Holiday Season, our Board recognized the unfortunate trend of the lack of food, clothing, and shelter for women and children here in Wake County.  To address that growing need, the Wake County ABC Board gave a supplemental funding of $40,000 each to the Raleigh Rescue Mission, Healing Transitions Women’s Center, and Urban Ministries Helen Wright Center for Women.  As we all celebrate the Holidays, let’s keep those in need at the forefront of our minds.
