Although we’ve written about the five primary agencies that assist with Christmas across the United States, there are countless smaller, local agencies that also assist with this desperate need.

If you don’t see your city/county listed below, leave us a comment and let us know!

In order to help your family have the best possible holiday season, we’ve enlisted a help of some additional researchers to find what Christmas resources exist in your local communities! Once you’ve made your request, we’ll forward it to our researchers. Once they’re done, we’ll leave a comment here and let you know what they’ve found!

Each list includes a mix of free gifts and free food that will help your family make the most of your holiday season.

If you live on a low income in Baltimore, then you need to see this list! We’ve found over a dozen agencies that can help you this holiday season. Click here to find free Christmas gifts and food in Baltimore!

Washington County (Hagerstown)

Before we began researching this list by county, we started out researching by city. That quickly became unsustainable. That’s why we have information on Hagerstown and not the surrounding area. If you need help in a different part of Washington County, let us know and we’ll get that on our research list.

What about CALVERT COUNTY, MD ? I'm 60 and my husband and I are both disabled.We only get $ 1,100. a month for both of us. We only get $54. in food stamps . Don't own anything except a 2005 vehicle that's in need of a transmission. We went months w/ o Car insurance and now have to pay for not only car ins. But also now a monthly fine of $75. to MVA. We have no food or extra money for anything. The 2 pantries ( only allowed to go to,, they go by address ) are open 1 day for the one and times 3-6 pm..and 2days for other ...times 10am-2pm.....ANYWAYS.. I'm worrying about that and my Grandchildren for the holidays... What can you find for Southern Calvert County, around Lusby ,MD ?
