Community Service Burtonsville, Maryland

The community of Burtonsville takes its name from Isaac Burton, who in 1825 bought out his siblings’ shares of his father’s land to become the major landowner in the area. Some may call it rural, others suburban, but to those who live there, Burtonsville is simply “home.” The population is diverse, and like many small towns, there is always need. Located midway between Baltimore and Washington, Burtonsville is near to some of the best sights and experiences anywhere in the entire mid-Atlantic region.

What We Will Do

We serve in a variety of ways, participating in community programs that support the basic needs of children and adults, and being a part of an exciting community outreach at a local church. As your team members enter into the lives of others and build relationships with the people of Burtonsville and the surrounding communities, they’ll experience God working through them at projects such as these:

Assist elderly residents at local retirement and assisted living communities with activities, games, gardening, and other projects. Serve local residents with much needed painting projects, minor home repair, yard clean up. Spend time with people receiving care at local nursing homes.

Serve in an interfaith clothing centers by helping clean, arrange and maintain a safe environment for the clients and visitors, sorting and organizing donations, hanging clothes, and greeting donors.
Serve in a variety of capacities at several local food banks and food rescue organizations – from food packaging and distribution to garden building. Help families moving out of shelters or otherwise living without their basic needs by stocking, organizing and helping select furniture and other basic home items as they prepare to move into stable housing.

Our Local Coordinator maintains connections with the organizations we serve so that our relationships are sustainable. She lives in the area and has wonderful relationships and connections in the community and with the church. She will be a great resource for you during the week.

We also have Site Leaders that live in the community who will pop in throughout your week to help make your experience even greater. The youth of the host church have been participating in Week of Hope and Workcamps for 20 years and are very excited for the opportunity to show some hospitality.
