"This is a historic day because it's the largest amount ever raised for our United Way by a single company," said Kathleen Momme, executive director of United Way-Eastern Shore. "It means there will be more Meals on Wheels, more hospice care for people with no insurance."

United Way officials say the programs will start seeing additional funding for this year in the next few weeks.
