Thank You from the Food Pantry!

I want to thank everyone for their response to the needs of the Food Pantry.  


Please keep the donations coming.  We now provide food to almost as many clients in a week as we used to provide to a month's worth of clients just 2 years ago.   


Thank you again for responding to our need......

God Bless our donors and volunteers.

We are so grateful for your support of this ministry

As always, anything you can give is gratefully accepted.....

Thanks for supporting the food pantry!

Food Pantry Needs


Redner’s Receipts are way down

The CCEA collects Redner’s receipts. Receipts can be put in the collection basket or dropped off at your church or CCEA office.

Please submit the whole receipt as partial receipts will not be considered. 

Refund from the Redner receipts covers the expenditure for meats purchased by food pantry staff for our clients.  Thank you for your assistance, it is appreciated. 

Note: Redner receipts totaling over $11,000 had to be trashed last week since they were over a year old.  Please send receipts on a monthly basis.

911 Memorial Blessing

CCEA was blessed with General Taylor’s participation in our 911 Memorial Service.

General Taylor blessed Frank Vari and Eileen Viars with a dinner invitation to his home at the

Aberdeen Proving Ground.  It was a wonderful evening spent with Community Leaders.   

We were so fortunate to be among the General’s guests that evening. 

I borrowed these words from a card that was given at the Cecil County Department of Community Services and the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon.  These words apply so well to the CCEA Volunteers, Churches, Businesses and Donors.

The CCEA could not function without your help.

The CCEA provides food, clothing and household item free of charge.  We also provide financial assistance but there is no cash on site.  The CCEA provides special funding for needs such as rent and utility payments.  Financial assistance is provided via electronic check to the company providing the service, never directly to our clients.  If we can help you please come in and talk to us. 



The CCEA Wellness Program is alive and well.

The West Cecil Health Center is now booking appointments for dental care of all ages with and without insurance and with MD Medical Assistance. Those without insurance will be assessed on a sliding fee scale for most services. This scale is different from the one used for sliding fee medical care at West Cecil.  Patients can discuss the estimated charges based on their income when they call for an appointment.

The phone number to schedule an appointment is 410-378-9696 and follow the prompts.
