Germantown HELP needs ongoing donations of nonperishable food, money and diapers (especially sizes 4, 5 and 6).
Our CFC (Combined Federal Campaign) number is 57844.
We receive donations through America's Charities and the United Way.
You may make a tax-deductible donation by mailing a check to:
P.O. Box 608
Germantown, MD 20875
Our EIN is 52-1410219.
Germantown HELP is supported by local churches, individuals, schools, businesses and community groups through food & diaper drives, cash donations and by some grants. We welcome contributions at any time. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about donating money, food, or diapers to our programs. If you have less than a few bags of non-perishable food to donate, you may drop them the Germantown Public Library (downstairs back entrance).
Food items we ALWAYS need (because they are part of the standard package we provide our clients) are:
- breakfast cereal
- spaghetti sauce
- peanut butter & jelly
- tuna fish and other canned meats
- canned fruits, vegetables and soups
- rice and pasta
Local businesses, churches and clubs can support Germantown HELP in many ways. For example, you can:
- organize a food or diaper drive on your premises
- donate money directly to Germantown HELP, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization under the Internal Revenue Code (EIN 52-1410219)
- encourage employees to establish a fund to donate to Germantown HELP. One local business had their employees donate money every time they had a cup of coffee.
- offer your business services to Germantown HELP; for example, copying and postage costs for printing and mailing our bi-monthly newsletter and volunteer schedule.
- donate money or a product or service we could use in fundraising efforts such as a raffle
- encourage employees to volunteer for Germantown HELP
- sponsor a Germantown family in the Holiday Basket program
We are open to all kinds of offers. You can make a difference!
