The HELP Association, a local nonprofit founded in 1972, supports the work of programs assisting the needy in Calvert County. The HELP Association recently donated $5,000 to Calvert Meals on Wheels, to ensure that the county’s homebound citizens will continue to have meals delivered during the holiday season.
All of the proceeds from items purchased at the HELP Association’s volunteer-run thrift store in Owings go towards helping the community.
HELP Association President, Patty Canter, said that “donating to Calvert Meals on Wheels is just part of what we do to give back to our Calvert County Community. HELP would not exist without individual donations of clothing and small housewares, our shoppers and the dedication of our 45 volunteers who make it all possible.”
Calvert Meals on Wheels was founded in 1982 to help homebound citizens who have difficulties preparing meals to live more independently. CMOW delivers a meal, smile, and wellness check to homebound seniors five days a week. Shirl Hendley, CMOW president, said that “this donation will allow our clients to have a very Merry Christmas! The HELP Association is one of our major supporters, and they come through every year. We are honored to partner with them to decrease food insecurity amongst our clients.”
