We were amazed and gratified by the response to our Thanksgiving plea for funds; between sponsors and donations, over 1200 Germantown households were served.
There are, however, now more than 1,300 Germantown households referred into the Holiday Giving Project for holiday help in December. They range from single, disabled adults to families with many children, and come from the broad array of backgrounds that make Germantown special. Caseworkers, school guidance counselors, congregations and area nonprofit agencies make the referrals into the HGP database.
While some families are sponsored by congregations, businesses and individuals, most are not. We gratefully receive thousands of toys through Toys for Tots Montgomery County! There are hundreds of adult-only households and families with older teens who we strive to serve with gift cards. Any donation helps!
SHOUT OUT to Church of the Redeemer Clarksburg for supporting more than 300 Thanksgiving households in zip code 20876, and even more for December! YOU ARE AMAZING. Love to all our sponsors, from one family-to-family match to congregations and businesses helping a bunch, we love you all immensely.
