We continue to develop programs to meet the ongoing needs of families in our community.
A requirement of our holiday program is that all families MUST be referred by Montgomery County Public School Pupil Personnel Workers or Counselors. This program provides the local community: neighborhood associations, book clubs, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, etc.—with the opportunity to make the holidays more meaningful for needy families by matching them with those fortunate enough to give new toys, clothes, needed items, etc. Donors have the option to either provide monetary support (tax-deductible) or they can directly receive the wish list of the matched family.
In the fall, we initiate a back-to-school drive, inviting families in need to request gently-used or new items their children need for school in the fall. Continuous needs are posted in real-time in our Facebook group. Please join this group to stay up to date on the assistance we need with new requests.
OUR VOLUNTEER FACEBOOK GROUPS
We communicate with all our donors through our three Facebook groups, one in the 20878, one in Frederick County and one for the Good Counsel community. Get immediate news of the needs of local families by joining these Facebook groups.
20878: Quince Orchard Cluster
The goal of the Matching Program is to directly match giving families to every family in need, with a focus on upcycling gently-used clothing and toys in order to meet the needs of local families on a continuing basis.
