Club Activities Raise Funds For Local Charities

Parrot Heads and Adopt-A-Highway cleanup

Since its inception in 2002, the EIPHC has donated oer $188,421 to local charities through a variety of Parrot Head sponsored activities and fundraisers. Our motto is “Party with a purpose”. Aside from monetary donations, Club members support local charities and non-profit organizations with numerous volunteer hours and community minded events. Some of the Charities that have benefited from our work include the Emerald Isle Fire Dept., Alzheimers Foundation, Family Promise of Carteret County,

‘Hope for the Warriors Program,’ and the Carteret County Humane Society.

Club members volunteered at several ‘NC Coastal Federation ‘activities, collected for ‘Toys for Tots’, raised funds for a variety of local organizations, and participated in the St. Patrick’s Day Festival and the Emerald Isle Christmas Parade.

Parrot Heads and the Humane SocietyMost years, the club has won the best float in the parade for the Emerald Isle Parade  in the non-profit division of the Emerald Isle Christmas Parade. It’s safe to say, we Parrot Heads take our fun seriously! Emerald Isle Parrot Head members also clean up the roadside near the Emerald Isle bridge with the Adopt-A-Highway program.
