Area churches and organizations in Emmitsburg, Lewistown, Rocky Ridge, Sabillasville, and Thurmont are working to provide students in need with school supplies for the 2020-2021 school year. This program is to assist students attending the Catoctin Feeder Schools. These schools include Emmitsburg Elementary, Lewistown Elementary & Pyramid Program, Sabillasville Elementary, Thurmont Primary, Thurmont Elementary, Thurmont Middle, and Catoctin High.

The Annual Catoctin Community School Supply Drive will be held on Tuesday, August 18, 2020, from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., in the Graceham Moravian Church parking lot, located at 8231 Rocky Ridge Road in Thurmont. 

Due to Covid-19, these changes will be in effect this year:

•   This will be a drive-thru event. PLEASE DO NOT GET OUT OF YOUR CAR.

•   Backpacks will already be packed with basic supplies according to FCPS guidelines and handed in your window.

If you would like to donate to this program, please drop off school supplies, cash donations, or gift cards (Walmart) to the church on August 12 from 9:00 a.m. until noon.
