Calvert County Democratic Women's Club

Upcoming events

    • 10/24/2020
    • 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM (EDT)
    • Boys and Girls Clubs of Southern Maryland, 9021 Dayton Ave., North Beach, MD 20714



    Our club is now working with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Southern Maryland (located in North Beach) to provide food to local families. This is a recurring event.

    Downloadable flyer for food donations (shown above)

    Downloadable flyer for food distribution (10 AM to 12 noon); please share with families in need

    Food drop-off at the Boys and Girls Club is from 9:00 to 10:00AM. The Boys & Girls Club will be distributing food afterward (typically from 10:00AM to noon).

    Please pick up the following items for the food drive:

    • Canned goods, pasta, spaghetti sauce, cereal, oatmeal, pancake mix, taco or burrito kits, bags of beans or rice, etc.
    • Personal care items such as diapers, sanitary pads, tampons, soap, deodorant, shampoo, etc.
    • Cakes or store-bought baked treats are greatly appreciated
    • Fresh produce (only if dropped off at BGCSM Saturday morning - other food collectors may not have fridge capacity for this)
    • Some people only have a microwave for cooking, so microwaveable donations are appreciated.
    • If you can, bring multiples of each thing. In other words, rather than bringing 10 different things, bring 10 of one thing.
    • Another useful idea is to bring things that go together for a meal, like pasta & sauce.
    • Due to insurance considerations, bulk foods can't be divided/portioned, so please stick to prepackaged if bringing rice, beans, flour, etc.

    Local Drop-off Sites

    For convenience and social distancing, CCDWC volunteers will collect & consolidate food and get it to the Boys & Girls Club.

    Drop-off  Locations & Instructions (Please check current list before dropping off food)

    Please email Linda Copeland if you would also like to be a food collection volunteer.

    The CCDWC will have a trick-or-treat booth at Halloween in the Garden again this year. This year's event will be different, with vendors spread out more, timed-ticket entry, prepackaged treats, and low- or no-contact distribution of goodies. Please see the Annmarie Garden web site for more details on how things will work to keep everyone safe.

    We need 4,000 pieces of candy! If you can donate candy, please bring it to the Democratic office (please check to see when someone will be there). The office address is 250 Merrimac Court, Prince Frederick, MD 20678. Phone: (410) 414-3660.

    We will also need volunteers to decorate and staff the booth. Please check back for details.

    • Calvert County Board of Elections, 30 Duke St, Prince Frederick MD


    How You Can Help

    Volunteers are needed to staff the Calvert Democrats' information tents on Election Day, as well as all days of early voting. The tents are places where voters can gather information about Democratic candidates, ask questions, and see a friendly face on their way to the polls. No experience is necessary to help out.

    Due to COVID-19 social distancing, we will be limiting staffing at the tents to three people on each shift. Masks are required.

    For early voting, staff is needed for ONE location. For Election Day, staff is needed for all FIVE polling locations. Here are the details:


    Early Voting

    Early voting will be held from 7am to 8pm each day from Monday, October 26 through Monday, November 2, including weekend days. This is different in that the early voting this year leads right into Election Day with no gap. The location will be the same single location as in previous years:

    Community Resources Building
    Conference Room 1 - Lower Level
    30 Duke Street, Prince Frederick

    Here is the SignUpGenius link to volunteer for Early Voting:

    Election Day

    On Election Day, instead of the normal precinct polling places, there will be Voting Centers located at:

    • Northern High School 
    • Huntingtown High School
    • Calvert Board of Elections (same location as early voting)
    • Calvert High School
    • Patuxent High School

    Per the Maryland State Board of Elections, voters can cast their vote at any vote center in their county of residence.

    There will be secured drop boxes for returning mail-in ballots, but their locations are still to be determined. The drop boxes will be available in October.

    Please donate a basket (or item) for our Online Auction

    Due to COVID-19, our annual Silent Auction fundraiser will be online this year, and it will be a gift shopping extravaganza!

    We plan to have several weeks of online auctions with different prizes that are yours for the bidding. What a perfect way to purchase holiday gifts and donate to the Calvert Democrats' Scholarship Fund at the same time. It's a win-win for you and deserving local scholars.

    How can you help?

    1. Donate a themed basket or other auction item; sign up at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0a48aeaf23a2ff2-calvert2 

    You DO NOT have to be a club member to donate something; individual and business donations are welcome!

    Auction items must be received by the organizers no later than Saturday, November 7, 2020. We will have several low-contact drop-off points for your convenience.

    2. Save the dates (Saturday, November 14 through Saturday, December 5) and get ready to bid! (More info will be provided as it is available.)

    3. Share the auction with friends and family on social media.

    Thank you for supporting our in-person events in the past. We hope to make this event even more successful and raise lots of funds for our scholarship winners.
