United Way gives grant to former hospital ship

October 07, 1994

The United Way of Central Maryland voted yesterday to give a $35,000 grant to the former hospital ship Sanctuary, a decommissioned Navy vessel that may be resurrected as a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

The 562-foot Sanctuary, which saw extensive duty during the Vietnam War, is owned by Project Life. The local nonprofit organization hopes to have a 100-bed detoxification unit on board by June of next year.
