In 2017, GOLD provided school supplies for over 480 children and partnered with the Hair Cuttery to provide 600 coupons for school children to receive a free shampoo, haircut, and blow-dry.
This program provides the tools required to assist Worcester County children, who live in poverty and low-income circumstances, to be able to achieve academic success and to blend in with their peers.
Worcester County GOLD Requests Help for 19th Annual School Supplies for Students Program
Worcester County GOLD, Inc. (GOLD – Giving Other Lives Dignity), a volunteer-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is gearing up for its 19th Annual School Supplies for Students Program. In 2017, with the help of generous sponsors and donors from our local community, GOLD provided backpacks filled with school supplies, along with coupons for free haircuts from the Hair Cuttery, for 492 children who live in poverty and low-income circumstances in Worcester County.
GOLD operates with only one full-time and one part-time employee. Assistance from community sponsors, donors, and volunteers is vital to our continued success in providing the tools required for Worcester County school students, who are in need of assistance, to be academically successful and able to blend in with their peers.
Please sign-up to sponsor children through GOLD’s website at WorcesterCountyGOLD.org or through GOLD’s Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/WorcesterGOLD. Like and follow GOLD’s Facebook page to keep informed about programs. Donations can be made to Worcester County GOLD, 299 Commerce Street, Snow Hill, MD 21863 or though the website to purchase school supplies. For questions or to volunteer, call 410-677-6830.
