The Easton Village Homeowners Association and Elm Street Development are pleased to announce a grant of $4,500.00 to the Talbot Interfaith Shelter (TIF). This grant will help TIF to expand its services to a larger number of mid-shore residents, many of whom became homeless for the first time as a result of economic pressures brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Elm Street Development established the Easton Village Charitable Fund in 2006 as a way to give back to the community,” Vice President Mike Burlbaugh explains. “From the beginning it’s been a joint venture of our company and the people who buy homes or lots in Easton Village.”
The Easton Village Charitable Fund is an endowed fund managed by the Mid-Shore Community Foundation. A small percentage of price at the first-timesale of a lot or house funds the endowment, which currently exceeds $100,000.00. The fund also receives direct donations from individual Easton Village and Talbot County residents.
Ty Dickerson, acting president of the Easton Village HOA says: “We think this annual grant reflects the true spirit of Easton Village. We have always been a community of people who work together both for the benefit of our own neighborhood and Talbot County as a whole.”
