Community Foundation's Mission of Mercy Fund Receives $50,000 from CareFirst

The Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore’s Mission of Mercy Fund received $50,000 from CareFirst to support the operational needs of the Eastern Shore’s second Mission of Mercy dental clinic held in April at the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center in Salisbury.

“Mission of Mercy” (MOM) projects are conducted across the country to bring quality dental care to underserved populations. MOM Projects consist of over 100 volunteer dental professionals and several hundred volunteer staff who coordinate two-day dental clinics at locations around the country.
