CA’s Youth and Teen Center to Distribute Donated Clothes and Accessories to Community Members in Need


Columbia Association’s (CA) Youth and Teen Center and its Teen Outreach Committee will be distributing donated clothes, shoes and accessories to community members in need on the weekend of Jan. 19-20.

The donations, provided through the committee’s fourth annual clothing drive, will be available to community members in need on Saturday, Jan. 19, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and on Sunday, Jan. 20, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Both distribution days will be held at The Barn, located at 5853 Robert Oliver Place in the Oakland Mills Village Center.

Those attending the distribution days will only need to provide their name and the size of their family. They will then be able to take what they need. Donations range from items for seniors all the way down to clothing for babies. In addition, coffee and pastries have been donated by Eggspectation, water has been donated by Walmart, and bags for the clothes have been donated by Harris Teeter.

The Youth and Teen Center (YTC) at The Barn is a fun, safe way for teens and pre-teens to socialize and participate in recreational and educational programs. Columbia and Howard County kids ages 9 to 18 are welcomed year round with after-school, summer time and some weekend activities and programs that are designed to promote self-esteem and to develop life skills.

For more information on the YTC, go to or call 410-992-3726.
