BERLIN, Md. - Non-profit organization Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services is collecting items from local businesses that will go to new teachers in the county.

"We're really not necessarily looking for back-to-school supplies. We're looking for more of things in teacher's personal lives that would be helpful," said Communications Director Morgan Coulson.

Coulson said items the non-profit organization are looking for include vouchers, gift certificates, discounts, cups, planners, etc.

About 25 businesses in the county have donated so far.

Businesses are being asked to donate 100 items. Volunteers will then pack those items into 100 bags which will be distributed at the new teacher breakfast.

"We have to be able to take care of ourselves before we can give to others," said teacher Niya Browne. "The fact that someone else is thinking of us is 100 percent amazing."

WYFCS is partnering with the Greater Ocean City, Berlin, Snow Hill, and Ocean Pines Chambers of Commerce for this effort.

The bags will be packed on Friday, Aug. 16.

Any business interested in donating items can drop them off at the WYFCS office on Main Street in Berlin by Friday.

Businesses can also contact their local chamber of commerce in Worcester County.
