Charity--Keeping It Local....

The Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County along with its initial funders, the Judy Family Foundation, Carol and David Cronin, and the Morrell Family Foundation, has started a special Help Our Neighbors campaign that will provide money to local charities that assist families and seniors struggling to meet day-to-day expenses.

This special fund raising appeal is in response to significant increases in calls for urgent assistance for basic human needs here in Anne Arundel County. Your support of the Help Our Neighbors campaign will make an immediate difference in the lives of local families in need.  To donate to the campaign go to and click "Donate". 
100% of your contribution
will be immediately directed to local charitable and faith-based organizations with the proven ability to determine eligibility and deliver assistance. The first $10,000 raised will be matched.  Please join us in this effort today.  Your contribution will be doubled!
Due to the recent economic crisis, families and seniors across Anne Arundel County are finding themselves in trouble.  Rapid increase in the cost of food, utilities, and other necessities are presenting a triple threat to their well-being and quality of life.  There are news stories on television or in the paper daily about food banks with little or no food and homeless shelters having to turn people away.  These stories highlight the critical needs facing many of our neighbors.

Our neighbors in crisis are not limited to the chronically unemployed or homeless.  Frequently, employed middle class families are falling victim to the financial squeeze.  Families and seniors who previously have not asked for assistance find they have no choice as they teeter on the edge of financial crisis, even if the wage earners work multiple jobs.  A car accident, broken pipe or serious illness can push a family over the edge.  Our fund is here to answer these one-time needs.
Please go to and click "Donate" or mail your gift to the Community Foundation at 914 Bay Ridge Road, Suite 220, Annapolis, MD 21403.
Your gift to the Help Our Neighbors campaign can make a difference in the lives of Anne Arundel County residents in need. They are our neighbors. Together we can reach out to help.
Please send comments, subscribe, share with your friends, and support our sponsors. Join us at Ahh Coffee! in Eastport almost every Thursday from 8-9 am.

Whether it's a Christmas gift for your husband, wife, child or friend, the act of giving is a show of love and appreciation. It also satisfies a basic need in all of us to please another. All too often, though, we forget about the larger purpose of giving, the purpose giving Christmas gifts to charity can fulfill.

Of course the act of giving a gift to a loved one or someone close to you has an immediate positive impact in seeing the joy on their face as they receive the gift and then them lighting up when they see how much you thought and cared to pick that particular gift for them.
