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.


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

Thanks for supporting the food pantry!

Redner’s Receipts

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. 

The CCEA VBS Working Group is looking for driftwood for one of our crafts. We will need about 200 pieces. You can clean up your beach area and help us at the same time. Driftwood can be left at CCEA Complex.

As always, thanks for your support.

****Your Help Arrived****

Thanks to all who helped with the food delivery on Friday.  We could not have done it without you. 


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.

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.
