SAM Charity Drives

Fall Manna Food Drive

Saturday, October 17 and Sunday, October 18 – All Day

Manna Food Center will be dropping off their big blue bins and truck this Friday, October 16. One bin will be located in front of the Discovery Sports Center and the others (with the truck) will be placed up at turf. A Manna Food Center rep will stop by Saturday and Sunday night to gather all the collected food for the day and lock it up in the truck. They will either pick up the truck on Sunday night or Monday during the day.

One Warm Coat Drive

Saturday, October 17 thru Sunday, January 31

We are kicking off the One Warm Coat Drive for the 4th consecutive year. We will be donating gently used coats/jackets (winter clothing) to Interfaith Works, which is a non-profit company based in Rockville and services about 4500 families a year. Over the years, we have collected over 800 coats/jackets to help those less fortunate. Let’s continue the good work and help keep our communities warm!

The bins are located in the main lobby of the DSC and are labeled “Men, Women, Kids”.

Toys for Tots

Saturday, October 24 thru Thursday, December 17

In addition, we will be collecting new unwrapped toys for the Toys for Tots campaign again this year. The collection boxes will also be located in the main lobby. Last year we collected 3 full boxes, and I’m hoping to fill 5 this time around.
