University of Maryland to Celebrate 24-Hour Giving Challenge, March 7

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Join us for the University of Maryland’s fifth annual Giving Day, its largest day of giving in support of scholarships, research, athletics and the arts. Staff, faculty and students will celebrate the 24-hour philanthropic challenge with a Giving Day party on campus featuring the marching band, Testudo and a custom ice cream from the Maryland Dairy.


Last year, more than 6,000 donors supported the university on Giving Day raising more than half a million dollars in support of scholarships alone. This year, for the first time, a Giving Day celebration in front of the University of Maryland student center will feature TERPRIDE, samples of the custom Double the Dough ice cream flavor, photos with Testudo, performances from members of the Spirit Squad and giveaways to celebrate the day-long giving challenge.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
