Help Families in Need through City of Gaithersburg Holiday Giving Program
With the goal of making the Thanksgiving and December holidays more festive for 500 families in need, the City of Gaithersburg is once again coordinating a Holiday Giving Program in conjunction with representatives from Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Derwood Bible Church, Grace United Methodist Church and St. Francis of Assisi Parish.
Individuals, businesses, congregations, and other groups are invited to help by providing monetary contributions, grocery store gift cards and Target gift cards in denominations of $10 and $20. Donations can be made by credit card this year. Opportunities to sponsor City families for Thanksgiving and/or in December are also available and most welcomed.
Referrals for this program come to the City's Community Services office from area schools and nonprofit counselors and the program operates in conjunction with the countywide Holiday Giving Program to ensure non-duplication of services. This countywide effort is coordinated by Interfaith Works in conjunction with the Montgomery County Volunteer Center.
For more information please contact Maureen Herndon at 301-258-6395 x2 or visit the Community Services web page: www.gaithersburgmd.gov/communityservices.
