UNC football team joins Florence relief efforts

ABC11 Together highlights the strength of the human spirit, good deeds, community needs, and how our viewers can help
Just outside the Dean Smith Center, a football equipment truck became part of an important team operation.


The Tar Heels Athletic Director Bubba Cunningham made the truck available to load and deliver donations.

Former player and New Bern native Kevin Reddick nudged current players to get involved and help out the community where he was a star football player.

Head coach Larry Fedora said they are happy to help.

No matter the size of the donation there is a payoff- the satisfaction of helping someone else and free football tickets.

Three hundred tickets to Saturday's Pittsburgh game were given away in exchange for donations while supplies last.

If you would like to get involved, collections are taking place Thursday, Sept. 20 from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Friday, Sept. 21 from 7:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
