We will be closed November 28-29 for Thanksgiving.

Christmas Angels

Not all heroes wear capes — some wrap gifts. This holiday season, you can make a child’s dreams come true by purchasing a few gifts from their wish list! Contact the Center at 410-467-8710 to “adopt” a child age 0-12. Each wish list contains three gift suggestions under $25 each. All gifts must be wrapped and brought in to the Center by close of business on Friday, December 13.

Holiday Party

The Center will host our Annual Holiday Party on Saturday, December 14. This festive event is a special time for families who may not otherwise have the resources to celebrate the holidays. Santa will attend, and there will be lunch, crafts and gifts for children. Please sign up in the Center with a photo ID. You will receive a ticket for each adult and child in your group. Must present tickets for entry on Dec. 14.

We are accepting donations of gifts less than $15 for children between 0 and 12 years old. Drop off your unwrapped gifts to the Center by Monday, Dec. 9. A thoughtful gift makes a big difference!
