Berlin, Md. – The Healthway Drive Community Garden received a large donation
from a very special group on January 23, 2018. The
100+ Women Who Care On the Shore is a group that meets three times a year for one hour to learn about local
nonprofit agencies, nominated by members. One agency that is discussed
is chosen to receive individual checks from the members of the group for
$100. The group is open to all women interested in donating to local charities.
All agencies must be 501(c)(3) and community organizations benefiting
Worcester, Wicomico, and Somerset counties. If you’re looking for

During the group’s first meeting of 2018, the Healthway Drive Community
Garden received the most votes to receive the donations from the group.
A huge ‘thank you’ goes out to the
100+ Women Who Care on the Shore for choosing the Healthway Drive Community Garden as their local nonprofit
of choice to receive $2,700.
The Healthway Drive Community Garden task force has been fundraising since
November of 2017 and plans to break ground on the garden in the spring
of 2018. The garden is a collaborative project with Atlantic General Hospital,
Worcester County Health Department, and Berlin Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
