Each year at Christmas, the Board of Child Care Auxiliary sets up a Christmas Store for the children served by the Board of Child Care. The store stocks new and like new merchandise so each child has an opportunity to select Christmas gifts for the important people in their life. Even though the children may not live with their parents and siblings during the holiday, giving them Christmas gifts is very important to them.
We ask that you donate items that you would give as gifts to your own children or grandchildren.
Donations for the Christmas Stores can be dropped off at any of the four locations: Baltimore, MD, Martinsburg, WV, Charlotte Hall, MD and Denton, MD.
You may deliver the donations by November 21, 2018.
To coordinate your donation please call

- Please no sharp objects or aerosol cans.
- The children do not select Christmas ornaments or decorations so we do not need them at this time.
- ALWAYS a need for hygiene items!
