Holiday Baskets help deserving families celebrate the season

Truancy Court Program's 4th Annual Holiday Basket Drive A Project of School of Law

Every child deserves a holiday meal

The University of Baltimore School of Law Sayra and Neil Meyerhoff Center for Families, Children, and the Courts operates its Truancy Court Program (TCP) in some of the most underserved neighborhoods in Baltimore. Working to re-engage students and families with their schools, the TCP identifies and addresses the reasons why students are missing school, including violence, poverty, poor health, drug addiction, grief, homelessness, and unemployment, to name a few.

As the holiday season approaches, we want to provide gift baskets to as many of our TCP students and families as possible. Many of our TCP families do not have the resources to buy special food or presents during the winter holidays. Please help us provide holiday gift baskets to the deserving children and families participating in the TCP. For many families, the baskets are the difference between holiday festivities or no celebration at all.

CFCC seeks donations to enable us to fill holiday baskets. Last year, CFCC distributed 50 food baskets as a result of the UB community's generosity! With your help, we hope to exceed that number this year. Each basket costs about $60 and includes holiday food, winter clothing, toys, and games. CFCC also will use funds to purchase school uniforms, school supplies, and incentives for the TCP students.

Thank you for helping give holiday celebrations to Baltimore City students and families during this season!
