During the fall and winter holiday season, local Anne Arundel County charities ramp up their assistance programs. They collect donations of toys, gifts, and more from the public, and then volunteers disburse the goods to the working poor at Christmas. Several charities as well as churches also serve both Thanksgiving and/or Christmas meals to the needy.
Examples of what may be provided to income qualified clients is as follows. Parents maybe given electronics, books, clothing, games, toys, and more, all at no cost to them. Volunteers will also try to deliver hot meals to the elderly and disabled in Annapolis Maryland and across the county. Also, in addition to offering those free Christmas presents, some charities also hold holiday parties in which people can stop by at for support.
As with any program, it is recommended to apply early for the Adopt a Family program or similar services. The items are often passed out first-come-served to those households that meet the qualifications in place.
