CAMBRIDGE, Md. - The Cambridge Adventist Church is partnering with the nonprofit Cambridge Main Street and local businesses in the coming weeks in a joint effort to support those people in Crisfield who suffered so greatly from the devastation of the deadly storm and who remain in need of help and support, particularly as the cold of winter begins to bite even harder.
Following the success of last year's food drive, Rev. Gonzalez is once again partnering with Main Street and downtown businesses on a project that will run through December 14 with the goal of supplying food, clothing, blankets, and other much-needed items for church outreach to victims of Sandy—and doing so in a way that increases foot traffic in downtown businesses.
Anyone can drop off non-perishable food, clean blankets, coats of all sizes, rubber boots, new packages of underwear and socks, gloves, toiletries, paper products, baby products, and pet food at participating downtown stores and restaurants beginning on Monday, November 26. You can tell which businesses are participating by the colorful posters in the window saying, "Win an I-Pad Here! And Help a Needy Family!"
For every three items donated, one raffle ticket is issued—and each ticket represents a chance to win an Apple iPad 2 worth $500. The winning ticket will be chosen at the church on Saturday, December 15.
The drawing will be held at 11AM at the Cambridge Adventist Church, 3105 Mallard Court Cambridge (visible from the north side of Route 50, turn onto Bonnie Brook Road). The winner need not be present.
