Dear Community Helpers,
The St. Michaels Community Center in St. Michaels, Md. has been busier than ever over these past several months--more than any other time serving our community in SMCC's 30-year history.
Very soon after the COVID pandemic swept the globe and Maryland's Governor issued a stay-at-home order, SMCC was designated by the Talbot County Emergency Task Force as the Food Bank Hub of the Bay Hundred area.
With the support from organizations like No Kid Hungry, we've been able to provide 6,557 meals to our neighbors in need since April 6, 2020, in addition to distributing 6,474 bags of groceries and/or fresh produce boxes.
What is truly heartwarming are the number of volunteers who have stepped up to help us accomplish these huge tasks. Local restaurants like Gourmet by the Bay have been providing 150 quarts of soup or meals each week to help us make sure everyone is fed.
Volunteers from all over the Bay Hundred Area are baking delicious cookies, brownies, and desserts to make the meals feel like "Mom" packed 'em.
SMCC has also been fortunate to receive much-needed funding from extremely generous individuals and organizations to make sure we have everything we need to keep it going for as long as it's needed.
Thank you, for helping the helpers, and being a part of the heart of our community,
St. Michaels Community Center
