Tax-deductible donations can be made through Pleasant View Baptist Church, 150 Downin Lane, Port Deposit, MD 21904.

donate to amazon wishlist

For several years, the Center has provided back packs and school supplies to the children of the families they serve to encourage the kids and help them start the new school year off well. If you or your churches are able to provide any back packs and/or school supplies, it would be much appreciated. They would like to receive the items by mid-August so they can assemble the bags and give them out to the families right before school begins. 

donate items

Items we are looking for include hygiene items such as shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, soap or body wash, lotions, feminine hygiene products, etc.; food items (no canned goods other than tuna or chicken) such as flour, sugar, olive or cooking oil, Jasmine or Basmati rice, cereal, fresh fruits and vegetables, coffee, tea bags, nuts of any kind; laundry detergent; diapers, especially larger sizes; basic household and kitchen items; furniture (please send photo first as the Center has very limited storage space, so larger items need to go directly to a family); and used clothings/shoes/coats in good condition.
