Why DONATE? Recently a man named Jim walked into our office and needed a shower bench from our loan closet. During our conversation he shared that he needed it for his friend “Smitty” whom he has only known for 18 months. Jim has taken on the role of caregiver for Smitty because neither of them have any other family or friends. He walked more than a mile to our office because he doesn’t have a car and he planned to walk a mile back to their shared apartment carrying the shower bench. 5 weeks later, he walked back to the office to return it so someone else could use it. Stories like this are why we are in the Frederick community. So many individuals just need one or two simple things to make their lives easier.
Federated Charities is part of a commitment that caring individuals made to our community more than 100 years ago and we have continued to pledge our support to local charities by providing them with low cost space so they can focus their resources on what they do best—serving the community.
A financial gift from you helps underwrite the operation of both our loan closet and our building, both of which impact hundreds of Frederick County residents each year. Our loan closet is supported entirely by donations and our continued ability to provide low-cost rent and maintain our historic property is offset by your generosity.
