Volunteer firefighters launch annual food drive [Elkridge]

Tis' the season for giving and receiving and the Elkridge community is gearing up for a lot of both. This week, find ways to give back and ways to get yourself refreshed.

It's that time of year again, where the community reaches out to its members in need. Join the Elkridge Volunteer Fire Department in spreading the joy and relief of the giving season by participating in its annual Christmas Food Basket Drive. Contributions may be either monetary or of food goods and may be dropped off at the firehouse, at 6275 Old Washington Road.

If you would rather contribute food items, the types of things that they are hoping to collect are Turkeys, Stove Top Stuffing, canned green beans, canned yams and juices.

You give and you give and you give. Now it's time to get.

It would be difficult to imagine Christmas without music, so here is your opportunity to enjoy the "real reason for the season."

The Alleluias, an interdenominational choir founded in 1971 and based in Howard County, will present "Canticle of Christmas," a cantata of uplifting Christmas music at Melville Chapel United Methodist Church, 5660 Furnace Ave., on Sunday, Dec. 7, at 4 p.m.

A light supper of soup, salad and sandwiches will follow the concert in the church social hall. A free will offering will be gratefully accepted. For additional information, contact Mary Burke at 410-796-0863 or go to the website at http://www.thealleluias.org.
