United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore Celebrates 75 Years of Service

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- Local CEOs and other leaders on Monday celebrated United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore's 75 years of service.

Pam Gregory, president and CEO of the local United Way, said the organization has invested over $1 million and 80 programs into the Lower Shore that focus on health, financial stability and education.

United Way's work across the Eastern Shore is widespread.

“[Health, education, and financial stability] are really the building blocks, and the three of those work together to make for a healthy community,” said Gregory.

Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Wicomico County Public Library, Perdue, and more have partnered with United Way.

Gregory says more than 54 percent of households in the lower four counties struggle to make ends meet every month, and United Way strives to cater to their needs.
