News from Steve Lafferty


When I speak with students about government and democracy, as I recently did at Stoneleigh Elementary and Carver High School, I mention the value and importance of volunteering and giving to others. I tell them this because democracy involves participation in the community around us. Government is a collective effort so engagement in our own communities is as important as the work of legislators.


As we approach this holiday season, it is a time to reflect on the good works that have been done and also to look at the many needs that remain around us. So, while you prepare for your family and friends, please consider providing support to those in our community who are struggling and less well off.


We are fortunate to have many great organizations in our area where you can contribute money, goods and time. If you have not already, I urge everyone to make such contributions part of their Holiday giving. Let me mention just a few you may want to consider:


·        Assistance Center of Towson Churches, 120 W. Pennsylvania Ave in Towson (410-296-4855) accepts food, personal items and gift cards to provide assistance to low income families and the homeless.

·        Maryland Food Bank (410-737-8282) provides food for pantries and kitchens throughout Maryland.. It is looking for financial donations to purchase food.

·        Victor’s Vittles Food Pantry (410-668-8089) accepts nonperishable food and personal need items for distribution to people in need in zip codes 21234, 21236 and 21286.

·        House of Ruth Maryland (410-889-0840) welcomes gift certificates and adult, infant and toddler sleepwear as part of its services to victims of domestic violence and their families.

·        Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland (443-573-0940) is looking for volunteers to provide nutritious meals for homebound individuals and pet food donations for clients who have pets.

·        My Sister’s Place Woman’s Center (410-659-3763) welcomes sweaters, long sleeve shirts and other clothing as well as personal care items and financial contributions to help homeless and impoverished women and their children achieve self-sufficiency.

·        Community Assistance Network (410-339-6457) is looking for financial support for its efforts to reduce vulnerability and promotes self-sufficiency of low income people in Baltimore County.

Thank you and my best wishes to you and your family during the holidays and throughout the New Year.
