Your VOLUNTEER Fire and EMS Departments are running a campaign to assist elementary age students in our county that do not have the means to have a book bag or school supplies for the school year.
We are simply asking the general public to take any donated items such as backpacks, pencils, erasers, pens, highlighters, washable markers, glue sticks, scissors, binders, loose-leaf paper, composition notebooks, crayons, folders with pockets, and index cards to any Fire/EMS Department, or any Sheriff’s Office District Station between now and August 28th.
JUST DROP ‘EM IN THE BOX!!!
On August 28th, the Girls Scout Troop will fill as many backpacks, supplies, and distribute these items to the county elementary schools as appropriate.
“COME ON OUT – THIS WEEK IS “TAX-FREE WEEK” HELP US HELP THOSE YOUNGSTERS IN OUR COUNTY”
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 email@example.com
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
