Day of Giving

For more than 20 years, the Interfaith Service Coalition has been serving the needs of Hancock and surrounding communities. 

Residents turn to the ISC for food, clothing, shelter, for many educational needs, and Keep a Senior Safe and Warm and Adventures in Friendship. 

Working with a small staff, the ISC is the local “one-stop shop” in Hancock and the Tri-State area, administering government funding, private funding and Church-sponsored funding. 

Thursday, give your “vote of support” for the ISC as it participates in a countywide fundraising event titled “Washington County Gives,” hosted by the Community Foundation. 

To make a donation, go to and make a $10 or more pledge to the ISC. Every dollar pledged goes to the ISC and strengthens its bid for a $10,000 grant from a Baltimore foundation, plus other funds offered by local businesses.

Residents can also drop off a donation at the ISC office, 116 W. High St. 

For more information, call Debbie Cohill at 301-678-6605.
