Success Stories

Christmas Cheer Program 2019 – We recently “wrapped up” our programs for 2019 by donating 36 Christmas stockings to the Calvert Shop with a Cop program.

Operation Backpack 2019 was a great success! Over 317 students registered for our program this year! We have so many to thank including the businesses who partnered with us as collection sites, everyone who donated school supplies or made monetary donations, CalvertHealthCalvert Hospice , Prince Frederick Eagles and Exelon for holding internal collection drives for us, the Help Association, Inc. for their generous support, Natalie MooreCarla Kemp and Billy Saunders for holding the “Stuff the Jeep” event for us and the awesome volunteers who helped stuff, prep and distribute the backpacks. When we first started this in 2009, we never imagined it would grow into something this big. And I’m excited to work on my vision for the next chapter of Operation Backpack – helping even more families get excited about and prepared for going back to school. Stay tuned!
