County Executive Leopold is asking citizens to donate to Holiday Sharing, a program administered by the Department of Social Services.

“During these difficult economic times it is important to remember the families who are struggling to make ends meet and provide for their children,” County Executive Leopold said. “This program benefits them directly by providing food for families and gifts for children.”

This year there are 9,000 families and seniors in Anne Arundel County who are seeking help to provide a Christmas dinner and gifts.  Most of these families are working but still qualify for assistance due to their employment being part time or at minimum wage.

Holiday Sharing can match donors with a family or senior citizen in Anne Arundel County. You then contact the family to let them know they have a donor; purchase the food and/or gifts and personally deliver the week before Christmas.

If you are interested in becoming a donor or can assist with a cash donation which will be used to purchase a gift card, please visit the County website at aacounty.org  The program office will be open until December 21.

For more information, call 410-269-4462 or e-mail tsteele@dhr.state.md.us
