SALISBURY, Md. - Giving back to the community you live in - can be key to helping it flourish.
Friday, the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore (CFES) looked to highlight that by honoring non-profits and people that have gone above and beyond the call of duty at their annual meeting and awards luncheon.
Pat Vorus was named Volunteer of the Year for her hard work with dozens of non-profits here on the shore.
The Delmarva Discovery Center & Museum (DDCM) took home the non-profit award of excellence for their work in turning the DDCM into a place where people of all ages can learn.
Lastly, Bonnie Luna was awarded the Frank H. Morris Humanitarian Award for her work that includes helping to create the The Magi Fund, an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that has raised more than $1.5 million for the poor and homeless.
Going forward CFES says they hope to help more non-profits and continue their work on the Eastern Shore.
"We're continuing to grow our impact and scholarships. We're continuing to grow our Giving Tuesday campaign and really focus on how we can support the entire non-profit sector," said Erica Joseph, the President of CFES.
47 ABC is once again proud to be a sponsor of Giving Tuesday which will happen November 28th. It's a day where you can make donations to participating non-profits on the shore, without them losing money to fees or charges.
