Donate your time!

Businesses, residents, and community stakeholders can still use an extra hand. The Ellicott City Partnership (ECP) and other groups are still in need of volunteers to assist with Clean and Green projects, festivals, and more. Check out their page for more info.

St. Peter’s Episcopal Church on Roger’s Ave was the hub of the community in the aftermath of the most recent flooding disaster, opening their doors to all. They could really use your help now, repairing their facilities and more. Click this link to their Facebook page for their most current needs. Help pay back the folks that helped so many.
