We couldn’t shake the sadness of knowing that so many kids in our county would be unable to enjoy long summer days filled with endless play. We created Summer Fun Stuff Baskets, our program that collects and delivers baskets of games, toys and summer activities to many low-income housing locations. The more we get, the more we give, the more fun for our kids!
In the middle of June, we dropped off Summer Fun Stuff! to keep 1600 kids busy this summer, and we couldn’t be more grateful for your help in making that happen, or more proud of our contribution to our community!
The organizations that received these toys, activities and books included:
The Essex House Apartments
Faith Connections’ Rock The House at The Damascus Garden Apartments
Identity, in Silver Spring
Linkages To Learning, for their Camp at Summit Hill ES
The Montgomery County Coalition For The Homeless
The Montgomery County Recreation Department, for the Board Acres ES Camp, Galway ES Camp and Food, Fun & Fitness Program at Fox Chappell
Sea Turtles Camp
Takoma Park’s Lunch & Learn
