GMB’s Salisbury Office has just wrapped up their 2015 United Way Campaign. Our goal was set to raise $2,500 for the United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore, and we raised over 150% of this goal. Not only are our dollars up, but the number of people giving was up as well. We would like to thank all of our employees who contributed towards this great cause and continue to support our community.
For 70 years, the United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore provides critical support for our neighbors in need in Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset, and Dorchester Counties. The organization, which is the largest non-governmental source of funding for area nonprofit agencies, provides support for 57 different local programs with a special focus on education, income and health. This year alone, the United Way is impacting the lives of over 100,000 people on the Lower Shore by providing over $1.3 million in funding to 24 local agencies.
