Once again this year, Civista Medical Center employees participated in the Christmas Connection Toy Drive for Charles County. Employees collected new unwrapped toys and gifts and held a bake sale/pizza sale that raised $1,270 to help needy families in our community. Special thanks go to Karen Collins, Donna Gray, Kim Stringer, Stephanie Simm, Amy Copeland, Brenda Rosier, Pam Anderson, and Paula Hancock for heading up this terrific effort.
Christmas Connection, the largest Christmas program in Charles County, includes five human service agencies that have combined their efforts to provide food and gifts for Charles County’s neediest families through donated funds, goods, and services. Annually, 3,000 children receive their Christmas toys, gifts, clothes, and food through this program. The agencies involved are: Charles County Children’s Aid Society, Charles County Department of Social Services, Department of Community Service Office on Aging, New Life Church, South Potomac Church, and The Salvation Army Charles County Service Unit. Thank you to all involved!
