Calvert County Democratic Women's Club

Upcoming events

    • 08/15/2020
    • 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 (pickups)

    Due to summer heat,  food drop-off at the Boys and Girls Club is from 9:00 to 10:00AM. The Boys & Girls Club will be distributing food from 10:00AM to noon.

    Please pick up the following items for the food drive:

    • Canned goods, pasta, spaghetti sauce, cereal, oatmeal, pancake mix, etc.
    • Personal care items such as diapers, sanitary pads, tampons, soap, deodorant, shampoo, etc.
    • 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 email Linda Copeland if you would also like to be a food collection volunteer.

    VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

    This is the signup for the second part of work needed to complete our Christmas in April house.  The exterior doors had not arrived when we last worked on the house but they have now come in!  We also need to put a second coat of paint on the gable ends, and could not accomplish that on the first work day because the initial coat needed four hours to dry.  In case of inclement weather, August 29 will be the reschedule date.  Thank you!  John Yoe

    Please sign up using the signupgenius link:

    IMPORTANT MESSAGE from CCDWC President Cindy Yoe:

    Early Voting and Election Day - Governor Hogan has announced that Maryland will be consolidating polling locations throughout Maryland for this election. Details have not been finalized but it looks like early voting will be expanded from seven to eight days and that there will be three polling places instead of one, one is the south, middle, and north ends of the County. The same will be true on election day, only three polling places. There will be at least three but probably more lock boxes. I will send out updated sign-up sheets when the plans are finalized. Thank you very much for volunteering and hope you can volunteer under these new circumstances.

    Cindy
