Weekly Prize Drawings and Winners

2020 MCC Giveaways

Each week of the 2020 Campaign, we held a random prize drawing for anyone who had given to a beloved cause through the MCC. Sometimes we offered just one prize and had one drawing; sometimes we offered five prizes and thus five drawings. It varied from week to week.

The 2020 MCC has now concluded, and we’ve contacted all winners. Please see below for details. However, even if you didn’t win a prize, please know that you DID win in the eyes of our charities and their beneficiaries.

Every MCC donor is a winner — because MCC donors supported causes that benefit people, communities, and ecosystems across Maryland and the wider world. We are grateful to each and every one of you. 

Read our Terms and Conditions here for additional details.

2020 MCC Prize Winner Kelvin Jenkins, BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport, said “To whom much is given, much is expected! I have a good idea of how the Coronavirus pandemic has negatively impacted nonprofits and small business operators. I wish that I was able to give more. Thank you Maryland Charity Campaign for sharing these organizations committed to improving our communities.”


2020 MCC Prize Winner Danielle Stanley, Department of Health, said “I decided to donate the gift card to a rescue. They were so appreciative.”
