SHALLOTTE—One group is striving to put an end to violence.
The N.O.T.T.T. Foundation (Nothing Other Than the Truth), a nonprofit organization founded by Raymond Bates of Boiling Spring Lakes in 2007, is planning a Stop the Violence rally Saturday, July 30, in Shallotte.
“We are trying to better the community by getting crime off the streets,” Bates said.
He feels there are very few resources in the community to entertain youth and feels strongly about creating a healthy environment for the youth of Brunswick County.
