    About Giving Together

    Giving Together will focus on specific community needs through coordinated service activities, such as donation drives and fundraisers. Giving Together will work to mobilize 209 schools and centers, nearly 130,000 students, and more than 19,000 employees to help communities in need. 

    “Service begins at home, right here in the neighborhoods that support our schools,” said Dr. Kevin M. Maxwell, Chief Executive Officer. “I am excited about giving back through Giving Together. This is an opportunity to show our communities how much we care.”

    Each month, PGCPS will highlight an area of need that impacts students, families and the greater Prince George’s County community.
