Casey Cares Foundation
Life can be difficult for families with critically ill children. That is why the Casey Cares Foundation developed programs to help keep spirits high with events and activities throughout the year.
Since 2000, the Casey Cares Foundation has provided 40,000 activities to over 90,000 participants and 30,000 pairs of pajamas to over 100 hospitals.
Chesapeake Bay Foundation
Did you know that the diamondback terrapin is affected by the loss of nesting beaches? Despite recent signs of improvement, our beloved bay is a system dangerously out of balance.
The Chesapeake Bay Foundation works to restore healthy rivers and clean water; sustainable populations of crabs, fish, and oysters; thriving water-based and agricultural economies; and a vital legacy for our children and grandchildren.
Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland
Each year the dedicated staff and volunteers at Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland prepare and deliver over 1,000,000 nutritious meals to homebound individuals.
In addition, over 1,300 volunteers with its “More Than a Meal” program provide services such as wellness checks, phone pals, companion visits, home improvements and modification.
Prince George’s County
The plight of strays and owner give-ups is dire in Prince George’s County. The SPCA/Humane Society is often a dog or cat’s last chance.
This all-volunteer nonprofit reduces pet overpopulation through its progressive spay/neuter program and promotes animal-friendly public policy. It helps prevent animal cruelty, neglect and suffering through investigations, legal action, affordable vaccinations and an active pet adoption program. Each pet in the group’s foster program—most of them shelter rescues—receives medical care, spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, a microchip and plenty of TLC.
Since 2015, the group has also partnered with the University of Maryland to offer a pre-veterinary college intern program, offering invaluable field experience to UMD students.
