Our first fundraising challenge was to cover attorneys' fees, expert witnesses, and communications to get us through the July 28 public hearing. We raised $60,000 from nearly 150 donors, including Fritz and Renee McPhail, who offered a generous matching gift of $25,000.
Two additional public hearings (August 11 and September 15) added roughly $15,000 in legal expenses. Now the storage facility developer has appealed the county's unanimous decision in our favor. We're trying to raise another $20,000 to participate in the appeals process. For every two dollars the community gives, neighbors Fritz and Renee McPhail will donate one dollar.
All contributions go to the Crab Creek Preservation Society, a nonprofit approved by the IRS and registered with the NC Secretary of State. Fritz and Renee McPhail sit on the board, along with neighbor Randy Doss. If you have any questions about the legal appeal, please feel free to call Nina at 843.838.3336.
Thank you for any amount you can contribute, however large or small. And thank you for encouraging friends and neighbors to give!
