Noteworthy Reporting Services, with support from Wake Forest Boys and Girls Club, donates Project Night Night bags
Raleigh, NC, October 28, 2015: In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness month, Noteworthy Reporting Services, with support from the Wake Forest Boys and Girls Club, donated 48 Project Night Night bags to InterAct of Wake County to help the littlest victims of homelessness have sweeter dreams. Wake Forest Boys and Girls Club members obtained book and stuffed animal donations and made blankets for the tote bags provided by Noteworthy Reporting Services.
Since Noteworthy Reporting Services’ inception, the company founders, Joann Bunze and Angela Eisenhardt, have supported the community by remembering to give back through semi-annual fundraisers. By simply booking depositions and examinations under oath, Noteworthy’s clients enable them to continue to provide support to many local non-profit organizations. Through the fundraisers, Noteworthy Reporting’s goal is to not only provide a donation to the organizations which they support, but also raise awareness for the organizations’ missions, as well as connect volunteers in the community with local non-profit groups.
Noteworthy Reporting partnered with Project Night Night, which donates over 25,000 Night Night Packages each year to homeless children 12 and under. Each Night Night Package contains a new security blanket, an age-appropriate children’s book, and a stuffed animal — all nestled inside of a new canvas tote bag. By providing objects of reliable comfort, Project Night Night reduces trauma and advances the emotional and cognitive well-being of the children they serve.
The Wake Forest Boys and Girls Club, whose mission is to enable all young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens, joined with Noteworthy Reporting to provide items for the Project Night Night bags. The Boys and Girls Club’s Keystone chapter chose this event as a service project opportunity for their general club members.
It is estimated that 1 in 30 American children will face homelessness sometime this year. InterAct is a private, non-profit, United Way agency that provides safety, support, and awareness to victims and survivors of domestic violence and rape/sexual assault. InterAct is the only confidential domestic violence prevention program serving Wake County’s twelve municipalities.
Founded in November 2007, MMIA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization which has support from hundreds of volunteers. Since its inception in Fuquay-Varina, NC, MMIA has honored its mission statement, “Dedicated to assisting veterans with disabilities, members of the Armed Forces and their families,” by providing more than $2,000,000 in services through their various programs—Operation Building Hope, Homes For Healing, Military Child Access Assistance Program (MCAAP), Fill The Footlocker, and Operation Warrior Golf.
Noteworthy’s first fundraiser of 2015 was held in February on behalf of Project Night Night, an organization whose mission is,
“Helping homeless children have sweeter dreams” by providing comfort items, free of charge, to homeless children from birth to pre-teen in an effort to help them feel secure, cozy, ready to learn, and significant.
Noteworthy Reporting worked in conjunction with the Wake Forest Boys and Girls Club Keystone Club to fill Project Night Night tote bags , which will be distributed to Triangle shelters in early fall 2015.
Each Night Night package contains a blanket, a book and a stuffed animal, all in a new canvas tote bag. Each bag is designed to be age appropriate, up to pre-teen boys and girls. Project Night Night strives to give children something they can call their own, something that can give them that little bit of comfort, and confidence, to deal with what’s in front of them.

Noteworthy Reporting held their 2014 third quarter fundraiser for Read and Feed, a non-profit whose mission is to bridge the literacy gap for low-income children in Wake County. This charity creates a safe and healthy place to learn, where caring tutors help young readers build skills and self-confidence, while fostering a love for reading. They feed them first — it is hard to learn on an empty stomach — and then they give them books to build home libraries.
The signature program of Read and Feed is the Feed the Reader Road Show. In partnership with elementary schools across the Wake County Public School System, the program serves communities by bringing its mobile classroom into neighborhoods where students need help the most.
