The Treasure Cove is always in need of clean, in season, clothing, gently used furniture and usable household goods.
We generally do not accept large appliances but will take your name and number in case we have a family in need.
Every penny we earn from your donations goes towards underwriting the programs and operating expenses of the St. Michaels Community Center.
SMCC strives to meet the unfilled needs of our community by providing low-cost merchandise that goes
back into our community. Please call 410-745-6073 if you'd like to volunteer your time or make a donation.
Thanks for your support !

|Chief Tony Smith of the SMPD teamed up with Trish Payne of SMCC and through
the S.M.Y.L.E. (St. Michaels Youth and Law Enforcement) took eight children and
their parents to the Wilderness Presidential Resort in Spotsylvania, VA over a the
long Easter holiday weekend. A reward program was intiated that allowed children
to earn the opportunity to go with their families to the resort by completing
community service projects or participating in drug and alcohol prevention
classes. Chief Smith and Trish Payne intend to offer 3 - 4 trips per year to
alternating groups of local children and their families.

with Chief Tony Smith
|Frequently throughout the year, SMCC and S.M.Y.L.E. provide community service opportunities and/or
drug/alcohol abuse prevention programs to the youth and families of our community. The community
service activities often help our neighbor non-profits or the Town of St. MIchaels and instill a sense of
accomplishment and pride. Young participants earn eligibility to join SMCC and (sometimes
representatives of S.M.Y.L.E). on a weekend camp trip to the Wilderness Presidential Resort in
Spotsyvania (wpresort.com). Call Trish at 410-745-6073 to learn how to join us!
