In 2013, we were able to help 32 families by making their homes safer and more secure. Most of these projects were wheelchair ramps built by 694 volunteers giving over 5,000 hours in service to their fellow man. Fifteen different volunteer groups provided the volunteers with seven of these groups being new to CHM. The team from Antioch Angels completed 7 with Asbury Service Project completing 5 and Trinity ASP and Nelson’s Church completing 4 each leading the way. With a very generous group of donors we received over $ 43,500 in donations in 2013. Our work in 2013 included Salisbury, Fruitland, Cambridge, Crisfield, Princess Anne and also Wicomico, Somerset, Worcester and Dorchester Counties.
Our partnerships with local agencies to refer client’s helps us locate those in great need and bring donors and volunteers together to help improve their living situation. Our Christian Mission to help those in need continues to guide our work.
We currently have 21 families waiting for help until the weather warms in early March 2014.
Choptank Electric Trust, Perdue, Community Foundation, United Way, Henson Foundation, Hazel Family, Wicomico Rotary, Sunrise Rotary, Asbury Service Project, Trinity ASP, Perdue Farms, MAC, SCOOA, Oak Ridge Baptist Church, Avery Hall/Peninsula Insurance, Nelson’s Church and Salisbury Rotary will be providing volunteers and/or funds to complete the 2014 projects. More volunteers and funding are needed to meet the needs of those living below the poverty level!
