Holiday Cheer is Worth its Weight in GOLD
November 1, 2021 – Worcester County, MD – Worcester County G.O.L.D. (Giving Other Lives Dignity), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is holding their Helping Hands for the Holidays program once again this year. In 2020, with the generosity of their supporters, GOLD provided holiday gifts for 649 children and 74 vulnerable adults.
This program provides Worcester County families and individuals in need with holiday gifts to help reduce financial burden and stress during the holidays. All recipients are screened by GOLD’s community partners to assess need and to prevent the duplication of services.
“The pressure to provide holiday gifts can weigh on families struggling with low to no income”, said Nicholas Cranford, Executive Director. “With cost of living increasing and temporary benefits expiring, holiday assistance will come as a tremendous relief to those we serve.”
If you would like to participate in the Helping Hands for the Holidays program you can sign up to sponsor a family, donate toys (new and unwrapped), or mail a check to be used by GOLD to purchase gifts. The deadline for sponsor sign up is November 22nd and all gifts must be dropped off by December 10th. GOLD will accept monetary donations throughout the holiday season.
