On February 24th, GOP Lieutenant Governor Candidate Greg Gebhardt made a special announcement at the Harnett County Courthouse.
Gebhardt announced that when elected, he will donate 10% of the Lieutenant Governor's salary to non-profits in the state who are making a difference in the lives of fellow North Carolinians, in addition to his tithe.
Gebhardt's initial contribution will be to benefit the state's first Veterans Treatment Court. On the contribution, Gebhardt offered the following:
"Our first donation will be to benefit the Harnett County Veterans Treatment Court, through Combat VTC, Inc., which is the 501c3 that supports the Veterans Treatment Court."
The mission of this court is to "keep free those who kept us free."
Veterans Treatment Court program director Mark Teachey offered the following:
"Greg's pledged donation allows the Veterans Court to provide temporary housing for homeless Veterans as well as provide transportation for treatment, food, and any basic needs that the Veterans may need in order to be successful in our program."
Established November 6th, 2013, this court is the first treatment court for Veterans in North Carolina. The Veterans Treatment Court is a holistic Court intended to get Veterans well and back to work.
"Our family has always been about service over self. We have always sought ways to better the lives of others, through military service, our work in State Government, and providing care for others, as my wife Carrie is a nurse in Fayetteville. Our latest endeavor has been offering ourselves to serve as Lieutenant Governor of this great state,"
said Gebhardt "We are so fortunate to have such a great program for our veteran population here in North Carolina. Our family has been tremendously blessed. It would be an honor for our family to continue giving back."
