Mr. Earl Wright, who is famously known as “Project Santa”, was recently recognized by the County Commissioners.

Mr. Wright received a certificate of honor for his work on behalf of Moore County children at the Board of Commissioners meeting on October 17th.

Every year for the last 20 years, Mr. Wright has selflessly refurbished and distributed bicycles to children for Christmas.

Moore County Solid Waste is now supporting “Project Santa” by collecting bicycles from citizens at the County’s seven solid waste centers.  The public is encouraged to drop off an outgrown bike to be collected and brought to Mr. Wright to refurbish and distribute to a local child as a Christmas present.

For more information, please contact Chad Bean, Solid Waste Division Manager, at 910-947-3637.

Together, we can help Moore people!
