DONATIONS HELP OUR COMMUNITIES DURING A TIME OF NEED.
Help provide hope to those we serve in the local area by holding an Apparel, Books, & Computer Drive in your community, business, school or church. Men’s, women’s and children’s seasonal clothing are appreciated. As well as old laptops, desktops, cell phones, and books. These items will be refurbished by local businesses and given to a family that will be impacted most by your charitable donation. Donate gently used winter coats, sweaters, sweatshirts, hats, gloves and jeans. If you can not make it on a specific date then we will gladly come to you.
Have an old bike sitting in your garage that you never ride anymore? Your used bicycles can make a big difference in the lives of some Charles County families. We can accept just about any used bicycle as long as there is air in the tires and it is in ride-able condition. Your donations are needed and appreciated! Donate your bicycle to empower an individual to ride for fun, fitness or to get to where they need to go. This act is easy and can be tax-deductible!
If you are an individual with a bicycle or two, or bicycle parts and accessories to donate for repair, reuse and recycling, it is usually most practical and cost effective to donate them. In some areas you have a choice of directing you bike to an organization that will use it internationally or to a domestic program.
Making Activities Easier to Afford for the Less Fortunate
At risk youth are some of those who are not prepared for success in school, or who do not receive enough support at home. The lack of preparation can be social, academic, and/or financial, and allowing these students drop out is the simplest, but least economically desirable, approach. Disadvantaged students who don’t have extra curricular activities to participate in tend to partake in non-progressive activities. This leads to them influencing others who have the same lack of support and poor chance of success, perpetuating the cycle. Consequently, there is a great deal of interest in finding ways to give at risk students the tools they need to improve. The three unmet needs (social, academic, and financial) often occur together, and sometimes providing financial aid for school helps the most strongly motivated disadvantaged students push forward without further personal assistance. However, many at risk students with average levels of motivation need continual monitoring and encouragement, and there are numbers of programs (Courtside IQ) detailing ways to help them move on through high school and college. For students who lack active parental involvement in their progress at school, we’ve partnered with schools (SO MANY of the teachers already mentor the students) to maintain a network of personnel for the purpose of supplying that necessary personal interest. This program targets students from low-income minority populations whose parents did not graduate from college, and they are achieving small miracles in terms of graduating. Financially disadvantaged families are even less likely to have a parent available for child care after school, so one major goal of aid for younger students is occupying their free time safely and productively. There are a vast number of supporting programs that offer skills training, help with homework, recreational activities, and contact with adults. We developed this program to provide financial assistance so the youth can be granted access to a better future.
