As a community-based organization focused on health, education and financial stability, the United Way of Southern Maryland is working diligently to provide support to our community during this pandemic.
The United Way of Southern Maryland is answering our county's call for help in a variety of ways:
- Partnering with our local food pantries to coordinate volunteers for food distribution to those in need
- Lowering spending constraints, allowing our partners to use UWSOMD funding for what is needed during the COVID-19 crisis
- Supporting our local agencies by sharing information and opportunities
- Promoting the support of local businesses through social media
If you are in need of assistance, the following resources are available:
- Calvert Department of Social Services - visit the website or call (443) 550-6900
- Maryland 2-1-1 is a quick and easy way to find information and get referrals for thousands of programs and services across Maryland.
