For nearly a half century, Rockville’s Holiday Drive has sponsored outreach that brings the community together to provide food baskets, gift certificates and toys to needy Rockville families throughout the Thanksgiving and December holidays.
While the drive begins officially in October, monetary donations are accepted online year-round at bit.ly/HolidayDriveDonate.
In 2022, the community contributed $40,829 in monetary donations and $42,500 in in-kind donations to the drive. About 1,100 children were served during the December phase of the drive. Six-hundred thirty families were served in November. In total, 300 volunteers contributed more than 700 hours of volunteer support to the drive.
