GREENSBORO, N.C. — Duke Energy announced Monday that they will donate $15,000 to the American Red Cross from the Duke Energy Foundation.

The money is to help with storm relief after the recent winter weather across the state.

In the wake of the storm, the Red Cross opened shelters to provide relief to displaced families.

“We’re appreciative of the Red Cross’s partnership in responding to the intense blow this month’s storm dealt the Triad region,” said Davis Montgomery, Duke Energy district manager for the Greensboro area. “The Red Cross provided an incredible service by offering food and shelter for our neighbors in need.”

The funds will be directed to the Red Cross’s Heart of Carolina Region benefiting Guilford, Alamance, Davidson, Randolph, Davie, Alleghanay, Ashe, Avery Caswell, Forsyth, Rockingham, Stokes, Surry Watauga, Wilkes and Yadkin counties.
