United Way for the Lower Eastern Shore says it is getting $150-thousand in grant money to help out communities in Somerset County which is trying to recover from Hurricane Sandy.

The funds come from the group’s Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund.

Rick Nelson, vice chair of the organization’s county branch, told WBOC that there were many elderly people on fixed incomes who are living “hand to mouth” in the wake of the Superstorm.

The date to begin filing for help is February 28 with their offices in Salisbury, Princess Anne and Crisfield.
