LEXINGTON, N.C. (Nov. 8, 2018) – Today, North Carolina State Treasurer Dale R. Folwell CPA, presented Laura Owen, CEO of Hospice of Davidson County, with a check from the state’s unclaimed property fund owed to the nonprofit totaling $4,811.31.
“We’re very appreciative for The North Carolina Department of State Treasurer reaching out to inform us of the unclaimed funds,” said Owen. “The agency will utilize these funds in our charity patient care program benefiting those in our community who otherwise would not have had access to quality end-of-life health care.”
In 2017, Hospice of Davidson County provided $210,000 in charity care.
“At the Department of State Treasurer, we’re in the check delivery business and through the N.C. Cash Program we were able to reconnect Hospice of Davidson County with this significant amount of unclaimed property, knowing that they will put this money to good use,” said Treasurer Dale R. Folwell CPA.“I encourage all North Carolinians to visit our unclaimed property site at NCCash.com to see if they have money waiting to be claimed, free of charge.”
