MCC Giveaway Winners and Information

Rick F. of the Maryland State Police, the winner of the “Dinner and Movie” prize (12/22 deadline), says:

“I am proud to help Maryland Charities. I donate to Hospice when we can afford to. They helped my father when he passed and I don’t think I could ever live up to their generosity. This year we were blessed and were able to spare just a little. I will continue to support Maryland Charities in the future.”
