Thank you to all of our guests and supporters of the 2018 MCDAF Impact Awards Brunch who helped to make it a “SOLD-OUT” event. Because of you, we are able to further our mission to support community programs and to provide scholarships to Montgomery County students.
We congratulate the esteemed 2018 Impact Award honorees: Dr. Yvette Butler-Yeboah (Education Impact Award), Catherine S. Leggett (Advocacy Impact Award), Rev. Dr. Rosetta Robinson (Trailblazer Award), and Ruby Rubens (Education Impact Award). Your contributions to our community will always be celebrated.

MCDAF is so excited to be part of the AmazonSmile family! In case you have never used AmazonSmile, here is how it works: Simply click on the AmazonSmile button, login, and shop. It’s just that simple! Don’t worry; you can use your existing Amazon account or easily create a new one, if necessary. Once you login, you will be able to choose from the tens of millions of products that are eligible for donations. The best part is that Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from all of your eligible purchases. So, the more you shop, the more Amazon donates, and the more MCDAF can help the community! Happy shopping!
MCDAF joined the #GivingTuesday movement. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and the generosity of people and organizations, who want to bring about real change in their communities. Not only does #GivingTuesday provide a platform for monetary donations, it also encourages the donation of time, talents, and other resources to address local challenges around the world. The day kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
We would sincerely like to thank everyone who helped the Montgomery County community through your support of the MCDAF mission. Hopefully this year, even more of you will “Join the movement. Make an impact. GIVE.”
