Talbot Community Connection Helps Provide School Packs to Area Children

Share

Talbot Community Connections, a non-profit organization of volunteers that was founded to raise monies to meet the kinds of needs that can overwhelm and cause long-term disruption to families, recently supported the Talbot County Department of Social Services (TCDSS) in providing over 269 cinch sacks with school supplies at the agency’s 11th annual event. The cinch sacks were filled with school supplies to area school-aged children in grades Pre-K through high school, as well as children ages 0 to three years of age. Vendors at this year’s event included Talbot County Hunger Coalition, Mid-Shore Pro-Bono, Agape Ministries, Priority Partners, Talbot County Health Department, Healthy Talbot, MD Coalition of Families, WIC-Mid Shore, Channel Marker, MD Legal Aid, Chesapeake Multicultural Resource Center, Talbot County Free Library and the Talbot County Sheriff’s Department. In addition, Bay Area Church of Easton and First Baptist Church of Easton were on hand to give out free ice pops. The ACME donated 15 cases of water again this year to event participants.

Talbot Community Connections provides supplemental funds to the TCDSS to expand the agency’s ability to solve problems. Every year, TCDSS finds citizen need is greater than available governmental funding. The organization also supports the Talbot County Children’s Advocacy Center (TCCAC), a collaborative effort of several Talbot County agencies to provide services to Talbot County children and families victimized by sexual abuse.
