Caroline County Department of Social Services’ Community Outreach Team Conducts Successful Giving Drive

Through the Governor’s initiative “Just Serve”, the Caroline County Department of Social Services’ Community Outreach Team (COT) organized a giving drive that took place from September 11th to October 11, 2021. This year, COT collected 275 items through staff donations for the Family Support Center in Denton, MD. Items included food items, hygiene products, and sanitizing items. There were also several coats, scarves, knit hats, gloves, baby bibs, books, and crayons.

The “Just Serve” initiative has shown major success in promoting volunteerism and improving neighborhoods and communities through this program. Locally, the initiative has encouraged staff to give in a spirit of service as we remember each anniversary of 9/11 by continuing the legacy of those who lost their lives by making a positive impact on the lives of Marylanders.
