The 2014 Cupcakes for Christmas toy drive was this past Saturday at the Waldorf West Library and it was pure awesomeness! Despite the rainy day, our community came together and gave abundantly! Over 300 toys were collected to be donated to the Center for Children of La Plata, MD.
Children made popsicle stick reindeer, christmas necklaces, and other fun crafts provided by Macaroni Kid Charles MD. And everyone enjoyed goodie bags filled with candy, coupons, and more!
Pinch from the Maryland Blue Crabs Baseball team and Batter the Baking Bear even stopped by to enjoy cupcakes and mingle with patrons.
Hundreds of Cupcakes were donated by volunteer bakers! At the end of the event, we happily donated remaining cupcakes to the Robert J. Fuller Transitional House (Homeless Shelter for Men) in Waldorf, MD. and Catholic Charities Women’s Shelter in Hughesville, MD.
All in all, Cupcakes for Christmas was truly a success. Our 3rd annual charitable event was fun for the community and will greatly contribute to putting smiles on the faces of less-fortunate families in St. Charles MD.
