How the Auxiliary Thanksgiving Has Changed Since 2017
For many years we supported Board of Child Care (BCC) families with Thanksgiving Baskets – collecting canned goods, cake mixes, stuffing etc. The families were very appreciative of this support.
Starting in 2017 we are handling Thanksgiving donations a little differently.
We provide $25 grocery store gift cards to families in lieu of physical baskets of canned hams, veggies, cake mixes etc. Donations will be much easier – just write a check or donate online! We will take care of purchasing the grocery store (geographically appropriate) gift cards for the recipients. Grocery Store Gift cards allow the recipients more choice in tastes and accommodating dietary needs (store policies prohibit gift cards from being used to purchase alcohol, tobacco or lottery/keno tickets).
Send checks payable to the BCC Auxiliary, Attn: BCC Auxiliary Office, 3300 Gaither Road, Baltimore MD 21244, with a note in memo “Thanksgiving”. This way, we can record donations in our database, and send an acknowledgment to donors.
We are always so grateful for YOU our supporters – Blessings to all and a bountiful Thanksgiving!
