Shore Gives More campaign raises over $269K
SALISBURY, Md. – In Maryland on Giving Tuesday the Shore Gives More campaign raised a record-breaking $269,627 dollars for nonprofit organizations across the Lower Eastern Shore.
Shore Gives More is a 24-hour online giving event that gives people a chance to send money to their favorite local cause. The Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore says they surpassed last year’s total.
Last year’s total was about $218,000 dollars.
They say that while this year has been different what hasn’t changed is the generous spirit of the holiday season.
“So, just to see the generosity come out of the community especially this year 2020 has been challenging and I think it really speaks to the compassion and the care that we have for each other here on the shore,” said Erica Joseph, the president of the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore.
Joseph says they’ll get checks out to each organization before Christmas.
47ABC is a proud sponsor of Shore Gives More.
