Casseroles for a Cause is Back! Stay in & Cook October 11-20

Casseroles for a Cause is back just in time for the Fall season! From October 11th through the 20th, Silver Spring Cares will partner with Kokua Foods,  Shepherds Table, and  The Arc Montgomery County. Our goal is to collect 2,000 delicious meals and help keep freezers full for many of our neighbors.

“Did you know that one easy way to support local organizations and families is by preparing casseroles? Volunteering to make a casserole or two helps to keep the freezers full for many of our most vulnerable neighbors. Your effort saves organizations and volunteers time, money and helps to eliminate any immediate food insecurity issues they may be experiencing. And you don’t even have to leave the house!”

Sign-up here to participate in the latest Casseroles for a Cause. Together let’s help make a difference in our community!

Silver Spring Cares Presents: Not Your Traditional Back To School Drive

With the new school year right around the corner, Silver Spring Cares is bringing another wonderful community drive to our area. Take part in the Not Your Traditional Back To School Drive, providing bulk school supplies for 7 schools in Silver Spring.

Not Your Tradition Back To School Drive will take place from August 5th – 23rd.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Back to School!

Yet, for many families in our community, this is a time of stress and shame as they already struggle to make ends meet. Many collections are being held for basic school supplies like crayons and glue and Silver Spring Cares is ready to help families by going one step further to meet the growing demands of today’s modern students.

Thanks to a partnership with YMCA Youth & Family Services/Linkages to Learning we hope to ease this burden for families in five elementary and two middle schools in Silver Spring! From individual family requests to providing bulk items for distribution to teachers and students, we hope to allow all children in our community to start the school year with confidence and dignity.
