Amanda and her husband created the Wilmington Black Professionals Facebook group as a way to connect minority business owners and employers of minorities in the Cape Fear Area. The purpose of the group is to create a fun and safe place for networking and to help cultivate relationships in the community. After Hurricane Florence they knew they had to do something to give back and decided to host a toy and coat drive at KGB bar and lounge in Downtown Wilmington. Dozens came out to support and more than 80 coats and toys were donated and distributed to two partners for them to be able to give away items to those people impacted by the storm.
