For over 30 years, Saint Martin’s Ministries (SMM) has been providing food, clothing and shelter to local working families, elderly and veterans who need help. SMM provides transitional housing residence for women and their children, emergency food and eviction prevention assistance, and a thrift store. Poverty in rural areas is particularly problematic due to lack of available resources. All programs at SMM support our neighbors who are struggling to make ends meet.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Chesapeake (BBBSGC) is the oldest and largest mentoring organization in the region, having served the Eastern Shore since 1982. BBBSGC is committed to helping children reach their fullest potential through professionally supported youth programs with measurable impacts. Our programs are tailored to the needs of children and include educational and social activities that they would otherwise never experience.
Your participation or sponsorship has a real impact on the lives of our neighbors who need our help.
