The Foundation’s List of NC Hidden Treasures!

Given that our staff do a lot of work for their programs and the Foundation across North Carolina, a lot of time is spent traveling the state, whether it’s to attend a conference, provide on-site training, or just meet up with a colleague.

Because of this, we began our most recent staff meeting by sharing our favorite hidden treasures found through our travels. Here is our list to share with all of you!
