Join Leadership Howard County during MLK Day to prepare Code Blue Meal Kits for Grassroots. These (non-perishable) meal kits are provided to individuals staying in the Grassroots building during “Code Blue” or extremely cold or inclement weather situations this winter. This will be the second year we have been involved in this service event and we are aiming to increase the number of cold weather bags that we donated last year. There are many ways to participate ~ be a part of one or all!
If you’re in our neighborhood between now and Wednesday, January 15th, stop by the LHC offices to drop off your donations (6760 Alexander Bell Drive, Suite 260~ Columbia, MD ~ Gateway Office Park); normal business hours are 8:30 am to 5 pm. During non-business hours, a collection bin will be stationed outside our main office door. If donations include cash, checks or gift cards, please slide these under the door (do not leave in the collection bin).
Please note that as we assemble the 350 bags, each will contain 1 of each item. (ie. if you donate a pack of four fruit cups, that will count as 4 items on the sign up genius)
