Congratulations to Talley who is now serving on the United Way of Central Maryland’s Community Partnership Board of Baltimore City and who has also recently joined the Executive Committee for the Lawyers’ Campaign Against Hunger.
United Way is helping kids stay in school, ensuring our neighbors in need have access to healthy food and healthcare, and helping people find jobs and a safe place to call home. Local leaders volunteer on United Way of Central Maryland’s Community Partnership Board of Baltimore City to ensure specific community needs are addressed and every dollar is invested for maximum impact.
United Way’s family stability and homelessness prevention programs in Baltimore City lift families out of crisis and help them get on the path to financial stability. One example includes a shelter diversion program in Baltimore City, in partnership with St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore, Associated Catholic Charities and Project PLASE.
The Lawyers’ Campaign Against Hunger was founded 28 years ago by a group of Maryland attorneys in response to the ABA’s resolution declaring a “fundamental right to be free from hunger.” Since that inception the group has raised more than 5 million dollars to support Maryland households struggling with hunger. The Maryland Food Bank benefits directly from the campaign, relying heavily on the funding to provide staple groceries and fresh produce to food-insecure communities statewide.
