United Way's Harvest of Plenty feeds families for Thanksgiving

   The cooler weather recently reminds us that the holiday season is just around the corner.  This is the season when many organizations reach out for donations for needy families.  It is the time many of us want to share with others in our community that may not be as fortunate as us.  2012 is the 20th year that the United Way of Central Maryland is hosting the "Harvest of Plenty."  Here in Howard County 250 families will have their Thanksgiving meal delivered to them in this program.  We your support in this effort.  Working with the Maryland Food Bank a donation of only $12 will feed a family.  You can provide a dinner to 5 families for $60.  There are two ways to give:

1) Mail a check payable to the United Way of Central Maryland with HOP (Harvest of Plenty) in the note to P.O Box 64282, Baltimore MD 21264-4282
2) Make a secure online donation at umcm.org/thanksgiving

     If you would like to volunteer to help register families for this program you can call 211 or register at uwcm.org/volunteerHOP

    This is a great way for your family or organization to provide a Thanksgiving meal this holiday season.
