NACCO Materials Handling Group (NMHG) has presented a $7,750 check to United Way of Pitt County during a recent East Carolina University (ECU) baseball game versus University of Central Florida (UCF). A donation of $250 was given for every homerun hit this season by the Pirates, who hit 31 homeruns.

“Our involvement with the United Way has continued to grow over the past 10 years, particularly when we started this partnership with ECU Athletics,” said Brett Schemerhorn, Vice President of Marketing for NMHG. “NMHG, in collaboration with the ECU football, basketball and baseball teams, has donated more than $232,000 to the United Way of Pitt County over the past three school years.” 

Jim Cieslar, executive director of United Way of Pitt County, was present to receive the check from NMHG’s John Angster, VP of Human Resources, Americas.

“Our partnership with NMHG and ECU Athletics is an outstanding example of the commitment that NMHG has to the people of Eastern North Carolina,” said Cieslar. “The partnership between United Way and NMHG rests on a mutual commitment to our local community.”
