Teens Sponsoring Donation Drive to Help Local Families in Need

Donations of everyday items will be accepted through December 16

 The Columbia Teen Center’s Teen Outreach Committee and the CA Teen Advisory Committee have collaborated to effectively collect everyday household items to donate to families in need during this holiday season. Items such as hair products, diapers, laundry detergent, soap, tissue and cleaning supplies will be accepted. Gas cards and gift cards are also appreciated. The goal is to donate one month’s worth of supplies for each family identified.

Donations will be accepted through December 16. Items can be dropped off at one of two sites: CA Headquarters, 10221 Wincopin Circle, Columbia MD 21044; or Columbia Teen Center, 5853 Robert Oliver Place, Columbia, MD 21045. For more information, please call 410-992-3726 or 410-715-5523.

The Teen Center Teen Outreach Committee offers a rewarding experience for teens to make a difference by creating and implementing service projects that benefit the community. Each year the committee works on various community service projects in and around Columbia and Howard County. For more information, please e-mail Safire.Windley@ColumbiaAssociation.com.

CA’s Teen Advisory Committee is made up of dedicated local high school students who bring new and exciting opportunities to the teen community in Howard County. The committee was chartered by the CA Board seven years ago and continues to sponsor programs, activities and fundraising opportunities for teens in Howard County. For more information on the Teen Advisory Committee, please call 410-715-5523.
