Morehead City Dealership Donates to Ocracoke Hurricane Relief Efforts


MOREHEAD CITY, NC – With the effects of Hurricane Dorian still felt by many in Eastern NC, Parker Honda in Morehead City is hoping a little relief will go a long way.

Lindsay Parker and Randall Parker, with the Parker Auto Group presented a check for $600 to Theresa Ray, volunteer fire fighter for the Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department on Tuesday, November 5, 2019. The money will go towards hurricane relief efforts on the island.

“We know this is a drop in the bucket for the long term recovery process, but we are excited to be able to contribute to the island of Ocracoke in any way possible,” says Ms. Parker.

“The island sustained widespread damage from tidal flooding during the September storm,” explains Theresa Ray, 2nd year volunteer fire fighter and Ocracoke resident.

“Many homes and vehicles were damaged, and the Fire Department has served as a major staging area for supplies and served the immediate needs of the people on the island, explains Ms. Ray”

The funds were raised at Parker Honda’s first inaugural “Trunk or Treat” event held at the dealership on October 29th. The event featured almost a dozen cars, all with their trunks decorated for children and their families to ‘visit’. Candy, hot dogs and drinks were provided, and Ms. Parker could not have been happier with the turn out.

“We were tracking interest on our social media pages, but we were unsure of turnout until the event was underway. We were thrilled with the way the community came out for a night of family fun, and to help us raise money for this worthy cause. It will certainly be an annual event for the dealership.”

The Parker Auto Group has been serving Carteret County and Eastern NC for over 72 years. Parker Honda is located at 5327 Hwy 70, Morehead City, NC.
