    Community Center seeks Christmas donations for local families
     
    The St. Michaels Community Center is seeking donations of new toys, non-perishables, toiletries, and household goods, which can be dropped off or shipped directly to SMCC at 103 Railroad Ave., St. Michaels, Md., 21663.
     
    Charitable donations can be dropped off at Treasure Cove Thrift Shop at 200 Railroad Ave. Monday, and Thursday through Saturday from 10am-2pm, or at SMCC Monday through Friday from 9am-3pm.
     
    Suggested donations include toys suited for children of all ages; personal hygiene items like toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, soap, and shampoo; family homecare items like detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning products, and sponges; and food items like canned chicken, tuna, roast beef, ravioli, pasta, stew, peanut butter, rice, soup, crackers, pudding, and fruit cups.
     
    SMCC staff and volunteers will also be carrying on the tradition of St. Michaels Food Pantry by preparing Christmas meals for pick-up and delivery to those in need. The meals are provided at no charge, with SMCC donors and in-kind donations helping to offset costs through their support. Sign-up for your Christmas meal by emailing Amy Dewitt at amy@stmichaelscc.org or calling (410) 745-6073.
     
    The St. Michaels Community Center will host a community Christmas dinner on Wednesday, December 22 at the parish hall of Union United Methodist Church, when staff and volunteers will be preparing 150 meals, all offered at no charge, with donations accepted.
     
    Ava's Pizzeria & Wine Bar in St. Michaels are donating the hams and turkeys for the dinner, with Awful Arthur's in St. Michaels donating the side dishes and desserts. More than 100 family baskets will also be distributed at the dinner, all supported by generous donations from local organizations and individuals.
     
    SMCC also hosts community Thanksgiving and Easter dinners each year, as part of its mission to serve, empower, and connect the community.
     
    SMCC also provides emergency clothing and household goods through its Treasure Cove Thrift Shop on Railroad Ave. in St. Michaels, which is open Monday through Saturday from 10am-2pm. Donations to the Thrift Store of gently used clothing, toys, household goods, and furniture are gratefully accepted Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10am-1:30pm.
