The Maryland Sheriffs' Youth Ranch is a 501(c)3 non profit that provides 24 hour foster care for boys between the ages 10 and 18. The Ranch has been serving youth since 1974.
I want to take some time to thank all of the people that supported our boys during this holiday season. Because of the support of our community our boys were able to enjoy a wonderful Christmas. We had our Christmas party here at the Ranch on December 20th. The kids invited their families, DSS workers, CASA workers, and we invited some of our longtime supporters as well as Maryland Sheriffs' Youth Ranch Board Members.
Many of our kids have had to create a tough exterior to protect them from the world. It is always heartwarming to see that tough exterior melt away when they see Santa walk into our gym; to see the joy on their faces as they begin to open their gifts (some for the first time in their young lives). This is all possible because of you, and for this I extent a heartfelt thank you. You need to know that you are changing our boys’ lives through your acts of kindness.
