The Hopeful Campaign has reached half of its $100,000 goal, raising $50,000 for the Mid-Shore COVID-19 Response Fund and is extending its campaign with particular emphasis on mental health services.
Richard Marks of Dock Street Foundation states, “It was heartening to see so many supporters donating at the Farmers’ Market Hopeful table week after week in addition to the generous contributions received on our website and at Sprout locations and at Vintage Books.”
As of the end of December, the Mid-Shore COVID-19 Response Fund had awarded $927,850 to 94 organizations on the Mid-Shore who have been impacted by the Coronavirus and affected by the economic consequences of the pandemic. Organizations in Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s, and Talbot Counties are invited to apply to the Fund.
“MSCF appreciates the opportunity to collaborate with the Hopeful Campaign to remind our community to stay Hopeful during the COVID-19 pandemic while also raising funds for our COVID-19 Response Fund,” comments Buck Duncan, President, Mid-Shore Community Foundation.
“Dock Street’s Hopeful signs resonated with us and lifted our spirits each time we saw one. My husband Jim and I gladly support the Hopeful 2020 Project. Please consider contributing to the Hopeful Campaign into 2021 with a primary focus on providing important mental health services in our community,” shares Hopeful Campaign donor Pam Harris.
