September 29th Events

On September 29,  at 9 am at Father Andrew White S.J. School in Leonardtown, there will be a Walk for the Poor to help raise awareness of the poor and their needs. All money raised by this walk, stays in St. Mary’s County to help the county residents in need of a “helping hand”. That helping hand may come when an emergency happens that wipes out their savings. For some, the emergency circumstances maybe an unexpected illness or an accident directly impacting their ability to pay their monthly bills. They may need help with food, rent, electric, gas or water bills. Or they may need help with transportation or a gas card to get to a doctor’s appointment or to a job interview.  These may seem like minor things, but being unable to pay for anyone of these necessities in our lives could mean the difference between being homeless or being able to live in one’s own home.

 

The St. Vincent de Paul Society will have a walk for the poor through historic Leonardtown on September 29th starting at 9am at the Father Andrew White School. There will also be a live band, face painting, silent auction, raffle, door prizes and food provided.

Do you live in the Tri-County Area of Southern Maryland? If Yes!! Then this message is for you. The Charles County Department of Social Services, Calvert County Department of Social Services and St Mary’s County Department of Social Services are looking for individuals like you to become foster parents to children in the tri-county area. Foster parents offer temporary/short-term care and supportive services to children who are unable to live at home due to abusive and/or neglectful situations. Each Local Department of Social Service (DSS) depends on foster parents to carry out the day-to-day parenting for these children by opening their homes and providing emotional wellness and enrichment activities until they can either return safely to their own homes or until the children are adopted. Each local Department of Social Service will provide the training and resources you need to be a successful foster parent.  For more information on how to become a foster parent, please contact the Tri-County Recruiter at 301-392-6727 or via email at cclarke@maryland.gov.
Remember, we are counting on you Southern Maryland to help the children in your county.
