We have had an amazing 2016. We have been able to help 61 families with home repair including wheelchair ramps for those living in poverty. Unfortunately, we still have 31 on our waiting list for help in the lower four counties of Maryland’s Eastern Shore. You can help make a difference in someone’s life by making a donation or getting a group together and volunteering to help.
In 2016, we were able to help 61 families by making their homes safer and more secure. Most of these projects were wheelchair ramps built by 1100 volunteers giving over 8,000 plus hours in service to their fellow man.Thirty eight different volunteer groups provided the volunteers with eighteen of these groups being new to CHM. The teams from Antioch Angels, Bayside Community Church, Salisbury Career Fire Fighters and Asbury UMC completed 4 each. With a very generous group of donors we received over $ 80,000 in donations in 2016. Our work in 2016 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.
Choptank Electric Trust, A.W. Perdue Foundation , Community Foundation, United Way, Henson Foundation, Hazel Family, Asbury Service Project, Trinity ASP, Perdue Farms, MAC, BACIL, Avery Hall/Peninsula Insurance, Nelson’s Church and Salisbury and Wicomico Rotary will be providing volunteers and/or funds to complete the 2017 projects. More volunteers and funding are needed to meet the needs of those living below the poverty level!
