"Bad things happen when good people do nothing."
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
Margaret Mead, US anthropologist & popularizer of anthropology (1901 - 1978)
Food on the 15th, a program of the Coalition of Geriatric Services (COGS), is an award winning program. We are proud to operate on $0 overhead. We were established in 2006 and have delivered over 24,000 free bags of groceries and toiletries to economically disadvantaged senior citizens at Morningside Park Apartments in Jessup, Maryland as well at the Tiber Hudson building in Ellicott City, MD.
All contributions are used to purchase gift cards to a local grocery store so that the senior citizens in our program can purchase fresh meat, produce and dairy products. Food on the 15th operates on $0 overhead, so every penny you donate goes 100% to the purchase of grocery store gift cards. Your contribution is tax deductible as COGS is a 501(c)(3).
