Dare County Center receives $21,000 donation for gifts for children in need

Terry Gray, lead organizer for the Dare County Motorsports Charity Group (DCMCG), presented Sandy Pace, director of the Dare County Center in Manteo, with a $21,000 charitable donation at the Dare County Board of Commissioners meeting held Dec. 7, 2020.

The funds were raised during DCMCG’s two-day Dare County Motorcycle – Jeep Toy Run, which took place Sept. 25-26 at Vertigo Tattoo in Manns Harbor.

The money was used to provide toys for more than 380 Dare County children in need this holiday season as part of the annual Dare County Center Toy Drive.

The Dare County Center has hosted the event, formerly known as the Roanoke Island Freedman’s Colony Toy Drive, since the center opened in 2009.

The Dare County Motorcycle Toy Run is a private foundation dedicated to ensuring that Dare County children in need have the opportunity to enjoy the holiday season each year.
