Horizons Inc. raises money for student programs at Poplar Hill Mansion

SALISBURY, Md. – Horizons Salisbury Incorporation hosted its last fundraiser of the summer season Saturday at Poplar Hill mansion in Salisbury.

The organization is looking to get a head start on fundraising for their summer programs for next year. Horizons helps low income students in our area.

They provide summer programs as well as tutoring and other enrichment programs — so students can prepare for college and their career.

The event coordinator, Brittney Glen said it’s important for Wicomico County to have an agency that helps students and their families to prepare for success.

Glen said, “It’s hard for Wicomico county. We have an impoverished population that is really hard to spotlight, and programs like ours really help those families out at a local level.”
