United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore recently held their annual Board and Staff Kickoff event, generating a record-breaking $89,405 for the upcoming campaign year. Hosted by Rick and Melody Nelson, the event serves as an internal kickoff of the campaign, allowing current board, past board and staff members to announce their own personal contributions. United Way is proud to report a $10,000 increase in board and staff donations over last year. The goal for the 2017-2018 campaign is set at $2.2 million, to provide funding for local community impact programs in Education, Financial Stability and Health across the Lower Shore counties.
Kathleen Mommé, Executive Director of the United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore shared, “Every year I am amazed at how our team exceeds the previous year’s generosity. Our United Way and the Lower Eastern Shore is blessed to have so many supporters that share our mission to fight for the Education, Financial Stability and Health of everyone in our community.”
