Summertime Stats: Food for Those in Need

Date: September 12, 2016

As we begin to prepare for fall, let’s take a moment to recap some of the amazing work United Way of Central Maryland volunteers did this summer.

  • 175,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables harvested for families at five Harvest Helpers events across Central Maryland.
  • 5,400 people fed from 450 casseroles made at three large scale Stone Soup events.
  • 750 bagged lunches and 375 sandwiches made and delivered to the homeless or families and individuals in need.

It is because of our volunteers that men and women living on the streets will now have a warm meal, a child will have a fresh casserole instead of cereal for dinner, homeless veterans will leave a shelter with a bagged lunch packed with care, and urban families will have fresh vegetables on their dinner plates.

No one can create change alone. That’s why we need U! Check out the United Way of Central Maryland Event Calendar and sign up for an upcoming volunteer event.
