The Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore, Inc. awarded MAC, Inc. $20,000 to support the organization’s Home-Delivered Meal Program, better known as “Meals on Wheels.” The initiative provides a life-giving service to the homebound elderly who are confined to bed, lack transportation, or are too frail to cook for themselves.
