Cold weather and the Holidays are right around the corner.  Once again this year, the Frederick County Department of Social Services is sponsoring the Holiday Gift Project to make the season special for some of our neighbors in need. 

There are many seniors, families, and children who would not be able to celebrate the holidays without the assistance of their neighbors and community.  Last year over 255 children and families, as well as 59 seniors were able to enjoy the holidays thanks to generous donations from our donors and sponsors. Offices, groups, families, and individuals have volunteered in the past to help spread holiday joy by participating in this program.   

All presents are greatly appreciated.  Those who volunteer to donate are provided with an information sheet about the family or person they are helping.  The sponsor is responsible for purchasing and wrapping the gifts and delivering the wrapped gifts to the Department.  Case workers will then distribute the presents to their clients.

The Frederick County DSS Holiday Gift Project not only warms the hearts of those in need, but the hearts of those who donate as well.  If you, your family, or group would like to participate by providing presents, please contact Jennifer Long at Social Services via e-mail:  jlong@dhr.state.md.us or by calling (301) 600-4544.
