The year 2020 has been a hard one for many Laurel families and Mayor Craig A. Moe is thankful to the Community of Christ Laurel Congregation, 7310 Sandy Spring Road, for their generous $4,000 donation to Laurel’s Community Assistance Fund.

The Laurel Community Assistance Fund, managed by the City’s Department of Budget and Personnel Services, was established to help those residents and businesses within the corporate boundaries of Laurel to receive assistance for:

  • Rent and mortgage relief, utilities and other emergency exceptions
  • The purchase of gift cards for use at local stores for food and personal hygiene items to aid in the relief of at-risk residents
  • Support of a worker relief fund to provide cash assistance to City of Laurel residents who have lost their jobs
  • Non-profit organizations helping with distribution of food and supplies and
  • City employee childcare support due to continued school system closures

Mayor Moe says, “It takes the whole community to come together to help ensure we are there for those adversely affected by the pandemic and this donation from Laurel Community of Christ Church is an example of the positive spirit we have here in Laurel.”

Anyone wishing to donate to the Laurel Community Assistance Fund, do so by sending a check payable to the City of Laurel, with the wording “Laurel Community Assistance Fund” in the memo section, and mail it to:
