Help us reach our #GivingTuesday goal!

This #GivingTuesday, we ask you to DIVE IN with us to replace our pool’s diving board.  After years of service to hundreds of youth, we had to remove the worn out diving board earlier this year.  We’d like to replace the board for the coming season, so that it can continue to inspire confidence and provide hours of safe fun for the kids in our care.

It’s a big job to raise $8,000 in 24 hours, and we could use your help to bring a little joy to the kids in our care, please contribute now.

Hello, [Name]!

As a supporter of The Children’s Home in Catonsville, I’ve just made a contribution to their #GivingTuesday fund.  Since their founding in 1863, The Children’s Home has been caring for kids in need of a safe home.  In the last year alone, they provided housing and supportive services to nearly 200 kids from Maryland’s foster care system.

This year, the Home has a goal to raise $8,000 in just 24 hours to replace their broken diving board.  It was easy to give online, and it can spread so much joy among kids who need it most.  Would join me in supporting the kids in their care?  Click here to give now.

Your support is essential and very much appreciated.

Thank you,
[Your name]

Hi!  I just gave to The Children’s Home to support their #GivingTuesday campaign.  Will join in?

Established in 1863, The Children’s Home (TCH) in Catonsville, Maryland, is a residential care facility that provides both long- and short-term services to youth 13 to 21 years of age who have experienced abuse, neglect, violence, abandonment, and/or are in need of supervised care. Located less than a mile from Baltimore City, TCH provides services to children of every race, creed, color, and religion. We provide therapeutic programs where children feel secure, loved and have a sense of belonging.

The Home’s programs and activities provide an opportunity for the children to attend public schools, develop self-esteem, and experience trusting relationships with peers and adults. Our programs focus on enhancing each child’s ability to function successfully in society, with the needed skills to become thriving members of our community.
