The Christmas Holidays are HERE!

The needs in our community are also still here!  

I asked for your help for Thanksgiving and you met me at the door with turkeys, can goods, dried foods, water, drinks, and gift cards.  THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Now, it is time to ask for your help again.  

The principals, teachers, and counselors at both schools made me aware that the families we served for Thanksgiving will also need help for Christmas.  Food needs are the same, however, the children will be looking for toys, coats, hats, gloves, socks, scarves and other presents under their tree.

What can you do to help meet those needs and expectations?

While you are out shopping for your loved ones, buy one item for a boy or girl for ages five to 12.  WRAP it, mark the age level, and list the gender on the package.

WE believe that we will have 40 baskets of food for the families, and would like to give at least two presents to each family for one or more of the children in the families.

Each of the families that we served for Thanksgiving had two (2) to four (4) children.  So, your food gift served at least 100 people.  That means we need to collect at least 100 gifts to give to our families.

YOU MAY DROP OFF GIFTS, GIFT CARDS, and FOOD to:

 MOUNT RAINIER CITY HALL
ONE MUNICIPAL PLACE
MOUNT RAINIER, MD 20712

City Hall is open from 9:00am until 5:00pm Monday through Friday.  Ms. Janis Lomax will be the contact for this project.  She can be reached at 301-985-6585!  If you cannot reach Ms. Lomax, PLEASE CALL ME email me at mayormiles@gmail.com.  I will respond.

THANK YOU for your help!
