15th Annual Chesapeake City Canal Race 5K Run/Walk

Will You Help Our Carden Grow?



Care Boxes

Seniors: Our participants really enjoyed the care boxes with Valentine's cards and treats from Girl Scout Troop 222 in February. I had a lovely visit with the residents at Canal Town Apartments on 2/17 to update our paperwork and heard very appreciative feedback from them. We had two new residents register for our program and one more who is interested (just waiting on getting their registration forms back). This will bring our number up to 16 seniors that we will create care boxes for every other month. We will be meeting on Saturday, April 6, to make the next batch of care boxes for the seniors, to be delivered on Tuesday, April 9. 

 Students: We made 26 care packages for Chesapeake City Elem students on Saturday, March 9, that were delivered to the school the following Tuesday. These care packages are distributed one per child per weekend. We will plan on making more mid-April when needed.

 Please keep in mind that we really need meal items (Hormel microwave meals, canned ravioli, soups, mac n cheese cups, etc.) as well as items such as fruit cups, veggie cups, applesauce, and other individually-packaged snack items, for both of these groups that receive care boxes. Thank you to everyone who supports this ministry!

 With gratitude,

Need Help with Evictions

Cecil County Health Department


We want to remind you about the assistance available through the Department of Social Services for households facing eviction and homelessness. If your household income is below 30% of the annual median income for Cecil County and you have received a court-ordered eviction notice, we're here to help. Don't wait until it's too late. Call 410-996-0100 to inquire about eviction assistance and prevent literal homelessness. In April alone, there were 21 evictions in Cecil County, but only 4 requests for eviction assistance. Please share this information with those who may need it.

Additionally, some of you may not be aware that Deep Roots can be a resource for children who are "at risk" of homelessness even if their family is not residing at Deep Roots. In particular, local agencies have been receiving calls for assistance from families who are living in motel rooms with children. Deep Roots hosts many activities for children and can arrange for transportation in some cases as well. If you are aware of a family who might be interested in this resource for their child/ren, please contact Jessica Stone at Deep Roots at 410-275-2194.


Let's ensure that no family in Cecil County faces eviction or homelessness without knowing the available resources. Together, we can make a difference! Please feel free to forward this information as appropriate
