Christmas Drive

We have the opportunity to spread the love this Christmas season by teaming up with two incredible Baltimore-area organizations: Love the Hopeful and Southwest Emergency Services (SWES).

Love the Hopeful is assembling “Christmas Joy” packages for needy Baltimore families that include a Christmas tree, lights, ornaments, wrapping paper, Christmas dinner and breakfast items, and more. One of our amazing members has provided everything except the dinner and breakfast items – that’s where you come in!  We are asking for donations of boxes including the items listed below. 

Christmas Breakfast & Dinner Box Items

Each box should contain enough of the following to feed 5 people:

 Pancake Mix
 Small Bottle of Syrup
 Shelf Stable Milk
 Oatmeal
 Canned Green Vegetables (3 small or 2 medium or 1 large can)
 Second Canned Vegetable like corn or yams (3 small or 2 medium or 1 large can)
 Instant Stuffing Mix, Mashed Potatoes and/or Mac & Cheese (choose 2)
 One Jar/Can of Gravy
 One 10-12lb Turkey or Ham

We are also collecting gift cards (Walmart, Target, Amazon, etc) in any denomination for Southwest Emergency Services (SWES). SWES will distribute these cards to needy families in the Baltimore area to be used for Christmas presents or other holiday necessities. 

To participate in either of these efforts, please reach out to us using our contact form
