The Women’s Giving Circle of Howard County is hoping to raise $2,500 to support the Community Action Council (CAC) this Thanksgiving, through our Emergency Response Network (ERN).
Our partners at the CAC are hosting the "Bring the Holidays Home" campaign, where $50 will provide a full holiday meal to a family – turkey, sides, produce and bread.
We have a goal to raise $2,500 which will provide 50 families in our community with a festive meal on Thanksgiving.
As the designated anti-poverty organization in Howard County, the Community Action Council is the “go to” organization for our most vulnerable members of our community.
“It’s hard to imagine that poverty is a problem in an area like Howard County, but one-in-four neighbors are struggling to make ends meet every day,” said Bita Dayhoff, CAC president. “Our vision is to enhance the quality of life for our neighbors so they may share in the promise and opportunity of our community, but we cannot do it alone. It is only with the help of our community partners, supporters and volunteers that we are able to meet the ever-growing needs of the clients we serve every day.”
On behalf of our partners at the Community Action Council we are asking for $2,500 to support at least 50 families in our community this Thanksgiving.
