Ways to Help

Volunteer – We have volunteer opportunities associated with Operation Backpack (August), our Christmas Cheer Program (December), and our Great Book Giveaways (March).  If you are interested in stuffing backpacks or stockings or are interested in helping with our Great Book Giveaways (reading to children during storytime or helping to set up for the giveaways), please email Krista Brezina – Kbrezina@TheChildrensAid.org

Hold a School Supply Drive –  It takes a lot of school supplies to fill nearly 300 backpacks!  School supply drives are ideal for youth groups, churches, and civic organizations.  If your organization is interested in collecting school supplies for Operation Backpack, please contact us.

Conduct a Fundraiser in Our Honor – There are many creative ways for schools, clubs, and groups to raise funds to help us improve the lives of youth in Calvert County: bake sales, car washes, chili cook-offs, pancake breakfasts, gift wrapping, yard sales, etc.

Or simply make a donation.  It’s tax-deductible.  We accept donations by debit and credit cards via PayPal.  


To make a donation by check, please mail your check to:
