MakingChange hosted its Autumn Appreciation Social last month. The annual event is designed to thank donors, volunteers, partners and other friends. Over 50 attendees listened to remarks by Executive Director Mike Couch, County Executive Allan Kittleman, Board Chair Tom Burtzlaff and Schnell Garrett, Acting Director of Student Life at Howard Community College.
Couch’s remarks included an update on MakingChange’s progress. He noted that last year the organization’s financial seminars attracted 538 attendees, and another 82 clients participated in Financial Coaching sessions, which require a longer time commitment.
It is through relationships with government agencies, businesses and non-profit organizations that MakingChange reaches the people who need its help, Couch said, thanking attendees on behalf of the hundreds of individuals and families served by MakingChange each year.
