The Holiday Season is about giving back, and there's no better way to do that than with our community. Carroll County Dental Associates has selected four organizations/families who need our support during the Holidays: Team Madison, Carroll County Cold Weather Shelter, Carroll County Food Sunday, and The Maxwell Family. We would love to invite you to join us in helping our community -- Read on to see how you can get involved!

Support Team Madison with Carroll County Dental

Madison Barnes is a 12-year-old girl residing in Westminster, MD who has been fighting medial issues her entire life. Madison was two pounds at birth and born with Down Syndrome. Currently, she is fighting to regain mobility after being diagnosed with severe bilateral Legg Perthes and Hip Dysplasia, a developmental deformation of the hip joint. Madison is a verbally limited girl who cannot express herself, has a moderate bilateral hearing loss, a seizure disorder, a feeding disorder with a gastrostomy tube, as well as other serious issues. 

Madison has undergone 10+ surgeries, including bone marrow/stem cell treatments, Botox, hip distraction, and reconstruction to repair both hips. More surgeries will take place over the next 4-5 years. Insurance will not cover all of the procedures since some are considered experimental. 

Carroll County Dental will be supporting Madison's mom, Karen's, Thirty-One Fundraiser to help raise funds for medical treatment.

  • What: Thirty-One has a large selection of affordable, trendy, personalized bags and totes that make wonderful gifts for the Holidays!
  • Where: You can shop online or stop into the office to see a catalog
  • Dates: The fundraiser will run from Nov 1st - Nov 30th 

Donate Food & Clothing to Carroll County's Food Sunday and Cold Weather Shelter

Carroll County Dental will be collecting food and cold weather clothing from Nov 1st - Dec 30th for Carroll County's Food Sunday and Cold Weather Shelter. Please support this cause by bringing in the following items in the month of December:

  • Non-perishable Food: canned fruit, hot or cold cereal, canned vegetables, canned tuna, chicken, salmon, plain rice, canned soup, spaghetti in one pound boxes, macaroni & cheese, peanut butter, canned beans, and tomato sauce

Carroll County Food Sunday is a non-profit organization of volunteers and members of the community coming together as neighbors helping neighbors by supporting Carroll County residents in meeting their emergency and supplemental food needs.

The Cold Weather Shelter, run by the Human Services Programs of Carroll County, Inc., provides protection from freezing weather conditions during the winter months for homeless adults in Carroll County. This seasonal shelter operates from November 15th until March 30th.

Join Us for Handbag Bingo to Support the Maxwell Family

The Maxwell Family {Kerri - mom, Rich - dad, and adorable 2 year old twins} have had many setbacks this year.

All money raised at Handbag Bingo will help fund the family's growing medical bills.
