"What are you thankful for?"
Thanksgiving is a time of gathering, reflection, and appreciation. This Thanksgiving, we asked the clients at our  HBCAC Men's Emergency ShelterWhat are you thankful for?

Watch the video above to hear from six MCCH clients who celebrated Thanksgiving at our emergency shelter.
MCCH's 2017 Holiday Gift Drive Needs Your Help!
It's officially the holiday season and we need your help to provide gifts for the 1,600 men, women, and children we serve!

You can help spread holiday cheer by donating gifts OR by joining our wrapping team! However you choose to help, know that you're making a difference in the lives of our clients during this special time of year.
Donors Make Thanksgiving a Holiday to Remember
Thanks to our generous community, MCCH clients received an abundance of food donations to help them celebrate Thanksgiving! Mercy Seat Chapel donated 50 turkeys and a group of families from Bannockburn Elementary School donated 50 pies to our clients.
Thanksgiving was an exciting day for our HBCAC Men's Emergency Shelter clients! To start the day, a hearty brunch was provided by longtime donors Jim and Barbara Rogers and their family. In the evening, our clients enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner, complete with all the trimmings, thanks to The Dick and Jody Vilardo Foundation who funded catering by Geppetto Catering.

Thanks to everyone who made Thanksgiving a special holiday for our clients!
Regardless of which winter holiday you celebrate, December is the busiest time of the year. Between juggling all the parties and presents, it can be easy to lose the true meaning of the holidays – the spirit of giving. There’s no better way to bond with your family than by doing something charitable for others.

Here are 5 ways you can give back as a family this holiday season!
Thank you for your commitment to ensuring that all Montgomery County residents have a safe, stable and affordable place to call home!
