Homeless for the Holidays

November 1 - December 31

Our 2022 drive has come to a close.

However, this is your heartbreaking reminder that although this is a holiday initiative, the need is year-round.

See below for a list of hygiene items our office collects and distributes all year to the students we serve as homelessness does not have a deadline.

If you could, stop for a moment and picture the holiday season. For most of us, the holidays are a celebratory time to gather amongst family and friends to spend time together under a warm roof and catch each other up on the excitement of the previous year.

For thousands of young people in Frederick County though, this time of year is incredibly difficult. Either alone or with family members, youth in your community are faced with the significant shift in weather with none of the proper materials to successfully stay warm, as well as the general increased insecurity in their ability to meet housing and food needs.

As a community, it is up to us to make this stop.


Because of you, we can be one step closer to removing the barriers of homelessness for Frederick County youth.
