Prince Frederick, MD – Several area families who might have found it a challenge to celebrate Thanksgiving in their own homes this year will have that opportunity thanks to a local nonprofit’s faith that local business would deliver.

The trusting organization is End Hunger in Calvert County. The business that delivered the needed funds is Bayside Auto Group of Prince Frederick.

A ceremonial presentation of a $7,200 check from the dealership was made to the organization’s leaders Wednesday, Nov. 26 at the Bayside showroom.

According to Bayside General Manager Mark Wanamaker, $50 of every vehicle the dealership sold during October was designated to aid End Hunger in Calvert County.

“I think some of our customers and employees donated more,” said Wanamaker, who added that after the Rev. Robert Hahn of Chesapeake Church spoke to the Bayside workforce about the efforts of End Hunger in Calvert County, they “really got engaged.”

The End Hunger in Calvert County partnering food pantries provide their services to over 700 families every week.
