Conduct a Donation Drive

SVDP could not support the many individuals who seek our help every year without the generous donations of clothing, supplies, food and so many other critical items. Donation drives conducted by local offices, social groups, clubs and other organizations are vital to our success. The residents in our care will benefit from your generosity.  If you are able to conduct a donation drive, below are the some of the items especially needed.

Holiday Drives

From November 1 through December 30, individuals or groups are needed to collect and donate items that will serve our clients all year long. To learn more please Download our Holiday Opportunities PDF or visit our AMAZON WISHLIST.  Email or call 410-662-0500 if you have any additional questions.


Help feed our hungry neighbors by hosting a food drive. Whether you’re collecting canned goods as a scouting project, accepting non-perishables as event entry or organizing a traditional food drive in your community, every donation makes a difference.

Food items may include:  peanut butter, jelly, canned vegetables, fruit cups, applesauce, canned soups, Gatorade and bottled water.
