When Devine arrived on the Carolina campus as a first-year student, she searched for a way to contribute and make her mark. She found it in Carolina For The Kids (CFTK), which provides major emotional, medical and financial support for the patients and families served by UNC Children’s.

“The mission of Carolina For The Kids aligned perfectly with what I wanted to do,” says Devine.

“The people in the foundation are exceptional,” says Brad Hendricks, assistant professor of accounting at UNC Kenan-Flagler. “The students deserve all the credit for the organization’s impact. They are genuinely passionate about what they’re doing, and they are making a far bigger difference in their community than I did at their age.”

Devine never tires of hearing how CFTK makes a difference in the lives of patients and their families.

“This organization has stolen my heart,” says Devine, “and I love it with everything I have.”
