 SALISBURY, Md. (WBOC) – United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore recently partnered with Perdue Farms and Vantage Point Solutions Group to provide laptop computers to 12 students in the third graduating class of the Salisbury Horizons Program.

 The donation was part of the“Tech 4 Teens” program, which is a United Way initiative to provide local youth with computer technology and supplies to increase their potential for success in the classroom.

The laptops were donated by Perdue Farms, Inc. and refurbished by Vantage Point Solutions Group. Webroot also provided one year of anti-virus software for the computers. 

The United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore has committed over $96,000 in total to further the efforts of the Horizon Program's youth educational and enrichment program over the last six years. 

“The Horizons Program is a great program that keeps students ahead of the curve during the summer,” said United Way Community Impact Manager Pam Gregory. “The ‘Tech 4 Teens' program is a way for us to give laptops and school supplies to these students before they enter the ninth grade.” 

“We are honored to once again be a partner agency with the United Way of Lower Eastern Shore,” said Horizons' Executive Director Harlan Eagle. “The financial support and organizational guidance that the United Way brings to our organization and our community of Eastern Shore institutions is invaluable.”

“Horizons' process and proven track record of eliminating the ‘summer slide' for students is vital to the success of these youth,” said United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore Executive Director Kathleen Mommé.

The United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore is now in its 70th year of serving Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset and Dorchester counties. To learn more about the organization, visit www.unitedway4us.org or call (410) 742-5143.
