The Community Services Division of the City of Gaithersburg serves families in need in the Gaithersburg Community in November and December through its annual Holiday Giving program. The City anticipates serving more than 600 families in November that have been referred by nonprofit organizations and schools and more than 1,800 children during the December holidays this year.
Monetary and in-kind donations allow for the distribution of food in November and gifts to families in December. The City is also seeking the donation of new hat, scarf and glove sets and items for gift bags that will be distributed to both teens and older adults. In addition to donations, Community Services welcomes volunteers to assist with the November and December distributions.
To make donations, volunteer, or to receive more information about the Holiday Giving program, please visit the Welcome Center in the Church lobby. You can also email Pastor Kate with questions or for more information.
