Inspiring Young Minds
$30 Fighting Hunger Service Kit

September is Hunger Action Month. Many of our service projects benefit individuals struggling with food insecurity. Our service kits are a great 'kitchen table' project to do with the whole family. Each kit includes learning curricula and talking points to spark conversation. Contact us with questions or click below to order your kit.

Grants Available
Since our launch of #MontcoServes, 31 Montgomery County schools have taken part in the campaign. Thousands of students have benefitted by assembling 6,810 hands-on projects helping those in need in our community.
We currently have grants available to eligible public elementary and middle schools in Montgomery County. Click below to inquire about bringing service projects to your school!
National Assisted Living Week
September 11-17, 2022

National Assisted Living Week provides an opportunity to recognize the role of assisted living in caring for America’s seniors and individuals with disabilities. This week gives us a chance to celebrate all of the staff, volunteers, and communities that play a vital role in making these facilities a success.
