With less than a week left until the work day, we are thrilled with our results so far. A million thanks to all who have donated!  See more

THE STORY:

For more than 40 years Jane Stearns’ house and garage were the rent-free headquarters and pantry for WUMCO-Help.  Now with the relocation of WUMCO to its Poolesville site, the home reverts to its original purpose—a residence for Jane and Duchess, her canine companion.

 

The greater Poolesville community is indebted to this compassionate woman for her inestimable contribution to community welfare through her leadership of WUMCO and the hundreds and hundreds of the less fortunate people who were touched by its services.  Now we have the opportunity to repay Jane in a small way for her 47 years of public service!

 

Simply put, because Jane’s first priority was always WUMCO, upkeep and maintenance of her home was secondary.  Repairs and improvements are necessary to provide the comfort, safety and healthy home environment we all want Jane to enjoy.

 

That’s why Helping Hands Poolesvile, a 501-(c)-3 community service organization best known for its annual Rebuilding Together home repair project, is sponsoring a “work day” on Saturday, October 3rd, to remedy the many issues, such as window replacement, weatherization, replacement of flooring, new ramp from the garage to the kitchen door,  correcting electrical issues, etc.  This work will require a modest amount of funding and a crew of volunteers.   Because HHP is unable to fund 100% of the materials required, it is turning to the community to raise $7,000.00 toward anticipated expenses.

 

Making your donation is very simple; your tax-deductible gifts made here will go to help with this project. Not comfortable donating online? You can make your donation by mailing a check, made out to Helping Hands Poolesville, to 18015 Elmer School Rd, Dickerson, MD 20842. Please put "Jane Stearns" in the memo field. At the request of Jane, any unused funds will go to WUMCO.  Brice Halbrook, Town Commissioner and businessman, will be serving as chairman of the fund drive. He recently sat down to talk to Jane about her home and WUMCO. We have captured some of that in the short video Here
