Holiday Giving Project Referrals 2014
For a referral to the Holiday Giving Project (HGP), an individual or family should contact their Department of Health and Human Services caseworker; Housing Opportunities Commission counselor; Montgomery County Public School (MCPS) counselor (if caller has school age child); or other participating social service agency who may be involved. The HGP is only for Montgomery County residents in financial need. Customers can only request a referral for themselves and their family members living in same household. Toys for Tots partners with the HGP to provide toys for December holidays and serves only those Montgomery County families with a HGP referral. Therefore, there is no separate referral list or referral process for Toys for Tots.
All Holiday Giving food, gift cards, and toys come from public and private donations. The HGP cannot guarantee that everyone who has been referred will receive assistance, as it depends upon donations received. As donations are available, individuals/families will be contacted by letter, phone or through a referrer with a plan explaining how to go about receiving assistance.
The deadline for getting a Thanksgiving referral is: October 29, 2014. The deadline for getting a December holiday referral is: November 21, 2014.
