‘Tis the Season

Hi Everyone!

This and next month at Montgomery College- Germantown, our Student Senate and a number of clubs are planning to give back to the community in a variety of ways… and would love your help!

Operation Warm-Up
November 15th-19th
The Student Senate is holding a coat and warm clothing drive for the children who benefit from the Linkages to Learning programs through MCPS. These families are in difficult situations, and providing necessary warm clothing often comes second to food and shelter.  New or gently used coats are most desired, but hats, gloves, scarves, etc. will all be accepted.

Basket’s Of Hope
Through December 3rd
The Women’s Studies Club will be holding a holiday care package drive to benefit the women of the Betty Ann Krahnke Center- Montgomery County’s only domestic violence shelter for women. They are collecting items such as toiletries, magazines, accessories, seasonal cards, candy, etc. and hope to fill 50 baskets.

“Can-Struction” Canned Food Drive
Through December 16th
The engineering club is building a “Can-Struction” (Google it! It’s really cool!). They will be collecting donated canned foods in order to build their structure, which they will use to advertise for their much larger canned food drive on campus starting on December 6th. You can donate now to contribute to building the structure or later in December to go directly to the drive. All donated food will benefit Manna Food Center and Germantown Help.

If you would like to help with any or all of these efforts please bring items to our Project CHANGE meetings or contact me and we can arrange a pick-up/drop-off.
