Governor’s Office Confirms Continuous Funding for the College Park Youth Program

I learned today that the Governor’s Office for Children (GOC) has agreed to release the state funding for College Park, Bowie and District Heights Youth Services Bureaus.

College Park City Council expressed concerns about the possibility of funding cut a few weeks back.

The Governor’s Office is holding tough and still refusing to release the monies for Annapolis, Dundalk (Balt Co), First Step (Balt Co,) and Greenbelt CARES, claiming that they are underperforming Bureaus.

We’re all very happy to be able to have the State’s funding and are honored to continue in the service of our families and children. On behalf of the children and families to be served, thank you for your important advocacy. This would not have happened without the involvement of many residents who asked the Governor not to cut funding for our important youth programs.

Campaign Launched to Raise Kidney Funds for NCP Resident

DonnaWeene

Our very own north College Park neighbor Donna Weene is in much needed funds for her kidney transplant surgery.

Donna’s daughter Rachel Elizabeth has launched a GoFundMe campaign. Here is the link to that campaign page. Rachel writes about the campaign:
She has done so much for me, my family, our community, our church, as well as individuals in need. She is on many committees in our community, she is a girl scout leader, a member of many groups at church, a daycare provider, and one of the best mother’s I know. I may be biased, but when I think of all the traits (good and bad) that a mother should have, she possesses them all. She has done so much for so many people and I think it is time something be done for her. My pride gets in the way of me asking for help, but I have to face the facts that I am one person and need help so I am turning to you guys.

Donna has served our community in many ways in the past, it’s now our turn to help her. Please pitch in and share with others. Thank you!
