News: Envirolink to Support Me Fine Families

Annual financial sponsorship would serve as a dedicated funding stream to provide financial assistance for requests related specifically to utility payment needs.

Durham, N.C. (July 26th, 2019)- The Me Fine Foundation is proud to announce that Raleigh-based Envirolink has agreed to serve as a sponsor for a utility assistance payment program. The $10,000 annual financial sponsorship from Envirolink would serve as a dedicated funding stream to provide financial assistance for requests related specifically to utility payment needs of families at Duke, UNC, and WakeMed Children’s Hospitals.

Me Fine Foundation is a local nonprofit committed to ensuring families whose children face a devastating medical crisis are able to receive financial assistance, emotional support and other necessary resources to sustain the loss of income due to the dramatic change in lifestyle. In 2018, Me Fine provided more than $22,000 for utility-related expenses. As the local population increases on top of unseasonably extreme temperatures, they anticipate this need to continue to rise. 

“As Me Fine Foundation looks to grow and serve more families, we need strong partners. Utility payments are a significant part of the financial assistance we provide, so we cannot thank Envirolink enough for this alignment. We applaud the dedication to community and couldn’t be happier to have them join our mission,” said Matt Phillips, Me Fine Foundation’s Board Development Chair.

 Envirolink has specialized in the management of water, wastewater, and public works services for governmental, industrial and private clients across North Carolina since 1997. Their timely contribution to Me Fine demonstrates their corporate philosophy of enhancing the sustainability of the communities they serve.

“We’re flattered to have identified Envirolink as our next partner in strengthening the community. They’ve chosen to empower Me Fine’s support of the families that need us, showing a real commitment to a more vibrant region. We’re so excited for this partnership and can’t wait to see it help us do more for families’ utility needs during their child’s treatment,” said Joey Powell, Executive Director of the Me Fine Foundation.
