Au Pairs from the Baltimore and Annapolis cluster met in Ellicott City on Sunday, November 24th. Our service project this month was to collect and donate gently used items such as winter coats, hats, scarves and gloves to those in our community in need. We coordinated with Hope For All , a Christian ministry that provides people with basic needs without sufficient resources in Anne Arundel County, Baltimore City and the Appalachian region. We met at the Old Mill Bakery and then took a stroll through the historic town of Ellicott City. While the weather was very cold we all gathered for lunch afterwards at Johnny’s Bistro on Main Street to get warmed up! The food was delicious and our day was a big success as we were able to donate several bags to the homeless for the upcoming cold winter months.
