Community event held to support families during the COVID-19 pandemic

SALISBURY, Md. – In Salisbury, several organizations teamed up on Sunday at the St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church to provide all kinds of services to the community.

The event, which was mainly geared towards the Latino community, gave people the chance to get general health screenings, free masks as well as help with school registration.

Organizations like the Maryland Food Bank, Wicomico County Census Complete Count Committee and the Peninsula Regional Medical Center came out to help.

Organizers tell 47ABC these kinds of events help to address many different concerns.

“So, we tried to come up with an event hearing concerns about access to food and concerns about masks both reusable and disposable, hand sanitizers, education,” said the Tri Community Mediation Executive Director Michele Ennis.

“We’re all concerned about the census and we know that every person needs to be counted in order to make accurate decisions moving forward,” said Ennis.

Organizers say they are planning to host another event like this one on July 12th at the Doverdale Park.
