Yenney discusses church's outreach program with club
OCEAN PINES– During the weekly meeting of the Kiwanis Club of Greater Ocean Pines - Ocean City on Aug. 14, the guest speaker was Mary Yenney, emergency outreach coordinator for the Community Church's Emergency Outreach Program.
The Community Church has a well-known and supported thrift store known as "The Nook" from which some of the proceeds go to support the program Yenney administers. The program she has run for more than eight years helps those in need with keeping the electricity and water running in dire times and even helps with the cost of medications for some elderly and disabled people in Worcester County. There is also a segment of the program that helps veterans who are disabled, wounded and in need of some help that even their small government benefits can't cover.
She works with other churches and county organizations when she cannot meet the needs and refers clients to them. She stated that her fund to assist veterans is currently depleted and hopes that she will get some community aid to fund it. Donations can be made to the Community Church and delivered or mailed to 11227 Racetrack Road, Berlin, Md. 21811. For more information, call 410-641-5433 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
