We have to improve life, not just for those who have the most skills and those who know how to manipulate the system. But also for and with those who often have so much to give but never get the opportunity.           Dr. Dorothy Irene Height

We seek to meet community needs through our various outreach programs.  With our partnership with the Adopt-A-Family program we have served over 50 families during Thanksgiving and Christmas.  


During the Holiday Season the section donates Thanksgiving Baskets and Christmas gifts to adopted families received from Prince Georges County Social Services Office.

Nursing Home outreach

During the month of February the section “Spreads Love” to our young at heart by planning a fun filled afternoon of fellowship and games at a local nursing home.

Christmas In April

During the month of April the section partners with social services and assist a disabled or elderly homeowner with items they had challenges accomplishing.  Some services the section has provided are yard work, painting and cleaning.  The section also donates over 200 snack bags for volunteers all over Prince Georges County the day of the event.

Supporting Local Service Men and Women

The section partners with local veterans agencies to assist in donating housing items as well as gift baskets for Easter in appreciation and support of their service. 

breast cancer awareness

Each October the section participates in the annual Tickle Me Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Breakfast where survivors are celebrated and the audience is educated on topics pertaining to breast cancer. The section serves as volunteers and participants to this event.
