Rita’s Closet- Rita’s Closet  in the  Town Mall of Westminster sells used formal wear for Special Occasions to raise funds for Carroll County scholarships.  Volunteers are needed to  greet customers, work the cash register, hang and price dresses and keep the store neat and clean on Thursday, Fridays or Sundays from 9:45 AM to 9:15 PM.

Carroll County Food Sunday- CCFS is looking for volunteers to help shelve and distribute food at their operations warehouse on 10 Distillery Drive in Westminster. They are open and in need of volunteers most Saturday mornings. Students should call 410-857-7926 to volunteer, or go to ccfs@qis.net .

 

Carroll Lutheran Village is looking for students to volunteer in their retirement community. They are looking for students to read to residents, share their talents, and assist with activities. Student can go to www.clvillage.org/volunteer to sign up or email volunteer@clvillage.org .

 

Human Services Project- HSP runs the Cold Weather Shelter in Westminster.  When clients come to the shelter, they get  supplies they need to make it over the winter. This year they need new or gently used sweatpants, sweatshirts, hoodies, gloves, socks (they really need socks), underwear (especially boxers), and women’s underwear and bras. This would be a great opportunity for a student leadership group (SGA, SHOUT, NHS, ROTC, Sports Team, Band, Chorus, Drama Group) to set up an indirect service project. Members of the group can get hours for advertising and collecting the supplies.. The Cold Weather Shelter opens November 15th and HSP will accept donations throughout the winter. Contact Joe Carr at jncarr@carrollk12.org .

 

Shepherd’s Staff- Shepherd’s Staff is now accepting new and gently used donations of infant to adult outerwear as well as hats, gloves, and scarves to give to those without. This is a great indirect service project for individual students or student groups. Once collected, students can drop off the coats and other clothing to a variety of places around the county such as: Boscov’s, Admiral Cleaners, New Windsor State Bank, and Scott, Pitrone, Sorkin and Jarvis Orthodontists. Please contact Joe Carr if you have a student or a group of student interested in this activity. (jncarr@carrollk12.org)  Shepherd’s Staff Call for Coats Drive runs until November 17.
