Remembering Santa This Christmas, And Not Sandy

Posted: Updated:

CRISFIELD, Md. - Their mission remains the same: helping children and families in need. For the past two weeks, Maple Shade Youth and Family Services has extended their outreach.

"Any family that's been effected by the storm or that was in need in any way, can come in and get any services we can provide," said Clinical Director, Jessica Holloway.

Car and truck loads of clothes have been coming in, but they're lacking baby items like diapers, formula and furniture. Not to mention, food, household and hygiene items are also going quickly.

"They can't believe they can take as much as they need, and they're very very thankful," said Crisfield resident and volunteer, Nancy Savani.

Despite the emotional rut many of these families are in, Maple Shade says they're aiming to make this Christmas as memorable as the last.

"Every year we sponsor kids. We have over 300 children that we serve and we try to get them adopted so they get Christmas presents," said Holloway.

If the community can donate gifts or money, Maple Shade can do the shopping. Officials say hopefully this will help children remember what Santa did, and not Sandy.

Maple Shade Youth and Family Services also provides victims with counseling. If you would like to help this organization, whether it be through donations or volunteer service, you can contact them directly by calling 410 -860-5133.
