Sep 14, 2016

On Saturday, September 10th, the Department of Community Services sponsored something new: Cecil Cares 2016, a countywide day of service. Close to 60 volunteers rolled up their sleeves, pitched in and got down and dirty (and sweaty!) to make our county just a little bit better.  We thank the following local organizations for coordinating Cecil Cares 2016 hands-on service projects: 

  • Cecil County Animal Shelter: landscaping project
  • Deep Roots: deck staining project
  • Elkton Community Kitchen: "kitchen scrub" at Elkton Presbyterian Church
  • Elkton Vet Center: "Veteran to Veteran Visitation" at the Perry Point VA Hospital
  • Fair Hill Nature Center: trail clean up and interior painting project
  • Freedom Hills Therapeutic Riding Program: fence painting project
  • Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna: "A Brush with Kindness" project (minor home repairs) on North Main Street in Port Deposit
  • Meeting Ground: fence repair project at the Mary Randall Center in Elkton

We were fortunate to assemble an amazing Cecil Cares planning team who met with us for a year to dream about the day - thank you for your time in planning and promoting the day and for believing we could accomplish something good in, and for, Cecil County. We look forward to Cecil Cares 2017!
