Benefiting Organizations

The DoGood-er Awards will recognize individuals who support our community, but the event itself will help to support local non-profit organizations. For the upcoming event, we have chosen 2 worthwhile organizations, that are serving a specific niche in our community. One is helping to fight childhood hunger on the weekends. One is supporting those in recovery with resources and assistance through their journey. 

These two organizations were selected based on the choices of our 2017 DoGood-er winners and the committee chose from there.

The 2018 beneficiaries are:

SHIP provides urgent services and resources to the hundreds of Frederick County Public School (MD) students experiencing homelessness each year.

Poverty and homelessness are pervasive within our schools, with these children significantly impacted across every dimension their lives. These children can be found in every city, hamlet and village within Frederick County, and within the vast majority of schools within our school system. This issue cuts across grades and all ethnic lines. And sadly, the numbers continue to grow each year.

Student Homelessness Initiative Partnership of Frederick County, a non-profit public charity founded in early 2014 has taken the initiative as a community and has partnered with individuals, organizations, human service agencies, businesses, and government to advocate and provide for these forgotten and often-overlooked children. 

The Frederick Rescue Mission seeks to rescue lives from poverty, homelessness and chemical dependency. We exist to meet the needs of hurting and broken people while inviting them into the abundant life Christ offers to all.

We are a Christ-centered ministry providing residential recovery programs to the homeless or chemically addicted, food to the hungry, clothing and furniture to the needy and connection within our community through relationships.

To support this event and these organizations, corporate sponsorship is necessary. If your business is interested in being a sponsor, please consider becoming one.
