Record Observer - - News -

QUEEN­STOWN — The Queen Anne’s County Men­tal Health Com­mit­tee re­cently awarded $29,500 in grants to seven or­ga­ni­za­tions that pro­vide men­tal health ser­vices to res­i­dents of Queen Anne’s County. Grants were awarded to: Crossroads Com­mu­nity Inc., Eastern Shore Hos­pi­tal Cen­ter Aux­il­iary, Haven Min­istries, Queen Anne County So­cial Ser­vices De­part­ment’s Nur­tur­ing Pro­gram, Tal­is­man Ther­a­peu­tic Rid­ing, Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice and Queen Anne’s County De­part­ment of Health’s Healthy Fam­i­lies Pro­gram.

“These grants are made pos­si­ble by com­mu­nity sup­port of our fundrais­ers and through gen­er­ous do­na­tions from lo­cal busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als,” said QACMHC Pres­i­dent Kelly Phipps.

QACMHC’s most re­cent fundraiser was the “Old Bags Lun­cheon,” held on Sept. 16, which raised over $27,000. QACMHC thanks the fol­low- ing lun­cheon spon­sors: The Marks­men Com­pany, Shore United Bank, Queen­stown Bank, Ben­nett Point C Land­scap­ing, Bob­bie Cusi­mano/ BBC Em­broi­dery, Eastern Shore Den­tal Care, Mon­aghan Con­struc­tion, Rose­land Nurs­eries, Deb­bie Shi­ley/Long & Foster and Judy Wink.

QACMHC was es­tab­lished in the 1986 by Lynette Nielsen who re­al­ized that lo­cal men­tal health pro­grams needed ac­cess to ad­di­tional funds to serve the needs of their pa­tients. It is in this spirit that the cur­rent ded­i­cated vol­un­teers of QACMHC con­tinue this mis­sion by hold­ing fundrais­ers and so­lic­it­ing do­na­tions from in­di­vid­u­als and busi­nesses to help pro­vide and en­hance men­tal health ser­vices for the res­i­dents of Queen Anne’s County. QACMHC is a pri­vate non­profit 501(c)(3) or­ga­ni­za­tion, and all do­na­tions are tax de­ductible. For more in­for­ma­tion about the or­ga­ni­za­tion, visit QACMHC.org.
