Children’s Aid, Inc., a 501(3)(c) nonprofit, provides assistance to economically disadvantaged children in Calvert County, Maryland. Through our programs, we strive to promote the importance of education and literacy. We also provide children with opportunities to play recreation level sports, which not only helps keep kids active, it also helps promotes self discipline, leadership, teamwork, cooperation, trust and respect.
Currently, we operate several programs. Operation Backpack provides economically disadvantaged children with a backpack filled with new school supplies and a new, age-appropriate book. In an effort to provide at-risk children with opportunities for physical activity, we provide Youth Sports Scholarships for a variety of activities, including football, soccer, basketball and baseball. The purpose of our Great Book Giveaway Program is twofold: to give books to children who otherwise might not have books (or many books) of their own and to educate parents on the importance of reading aloud to their young children.
