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
