MARYLAND

Since our founding in 2013, Trellis Arch has been involved in numerous projects right here at home in Maryland. We award three scholarships to graduating high school seniors attending Frederick Community College and provide school supplies to students in Frederick County. Our volunteers donate their time for projects with the Arc of Frederick County among other organizations.  Trellis Arch also makes home renovations for low-income families whose children don’t have an adequate space to do their homework.  All of these projects are in keeping with our philosophy – making a difference, one child at a time.  Contact us to learn more about how you can help at-risk children succeed here in Maryland.

PAST LOCAL PROJECTS

– School supplies for refugee students in Maryland

Trellis Arch worked with the International Rescue Committee to gather school supplies for newly arrived refugee children living in Montgomery County, Maryland.  

Donations of school supplies equip children with the tools they need to succeed in school, ease financial stress on their parents, and show that the community is invested in the success of incoming refugees. With a backpack and the items listed, a student has everything the school requires of them.

We filled backpacks and delivered them to IRC, each containing the following items:

1 3-inch, 3-ring binder
4 composition notebooks
2 spiral notebooks (college ruled)
10 pens (blue or black)
12 #2 pencils
8 binder dividers
2 glue sticks
1 ruler
1 pack index cards
1 flash drive
2 packages loose leaf paper (college ruled)
1 scientific calculator
2 pencil sharpeners
1 agenda / planner
3 highlighters

– Home improvement in Frederick, Maryland

When Trellis Arch learned that a high school student in Frederick was living in an unfinished basement, we sought volunteers to help improve his living conditions. David Taylor of Taylor Painting Contractors volunteered to do the job.  His team provided construction materials and labor and finished the job in a few days.  They framed and insulated the basement walls,  added a heater vent and recessed lighting, hung drywall and put in a ceiling, added a door, and painted and carpeted the entire space.  An amazing transition.
