Description

To Serve, Uplift, Connect and Celebrate our Community!  A BOLD VISION FOR A STRONGER COMMUNITY

Event Details

New in 2019, Liberty Community Development Corporation (LCDC) revamped our annual food and school supplies drive, giving it an innovative and different form of vitality. Once named the “Back to School Jam,” we are taking a new and fresh approach to efforts in igniting the community. Birthed from LCDCs’ mission to promote improvement in the quality of life of Baltimore County residents, this event has spanned twelve years and has provided over 10,000 families with food and toiletries and 15,000 children with school supplies. This half-day give a way event will continue with its original purpose but this year we are increasing the access to resources music and activities for everyone; committed to creating a fun and safe space for people of the community to have a good time and encourage a sense of community pride and cohesiveness.

With our new location and added goals we project attendance to double from the average 1000 attendees to 2000. We want to increase availability of resources, services and information to families. We also want to provide consultation and information from agencies, organizations and public policy-makers interested in improving the community. Working collaboratively to Serve, Uplift, Connect, and Celebrate our Community.
