The Community Club of Preston was founded in 1923, and continues to be active as it nears its 100th anniversary. The Club meets the third Tuesday of the month from September through June, at 1:00pm at the Community/Lions' Club building, 114 Williamson Street, Preston, with some exceptions. Funds are raised by the Club through such activities as a Fashion Show/Luncheon and Christmas House Tour. Proceeds from their fundraisers go back in to the community via support of such groups and projects as the Preston Fire Department, Girls' State, local high school culinary departments, Power Purse ER Victims Project, Arbor Day Tree Project, Preston Elementary School, Colonel Richardson Middle School, and Colonel Richardson High School. The Club has purchased Christmas gifts for needy families, distributes trees on Arbor Day, conducted a coat drive, and offers scholarships to graduating Colonel Richardson High School Seniors. The Club also installed and maintains the Little Free Library (#37123) at the James T. Wright Memorial Park in Preston. The Club is always looking for new projects to support, as well as for new members to help us accomplish our goal of supporting our local community. For more information regarding possible assistance, or if you are interested in joining the Club, call 410-310-5454.

Imagine sitting in a classroom, struggling to pay attention and learn, because you haven't eaten in three days. Unfortunately, this is a reality for 25% of students in Caroline County. These children rarely get a meal except when they're at school. Studies show that children who don't eat over the weekend are not alert enough to learn until Wednesday after they begin receiving meals in school. This means these children are losing half of their time in school to hunger.​ The consequences of childhood hunger are significant:
Approximately 2/3 of these children are at risk for developmental delays.
By the time they are teenagers, these children are twice as likely to have seen a psychiatrist or have been suspended from school.
Children who come to school hungry have lower standardized test scores than low-income children who arrive at school well-fed.
Nationally, less than 5% of children living in poverty are likely to graduate high school.
about the backpack program
In 2015, Caroline County Public Schools launched an initiative to provide children in need with food for the weekend. On Fridays, these children are provided with backpacks filled with food. This puts the food directly into the kids' hands, ensuring they are able to eat over the weekend regardless of their circumstances at home.

CCPS also coordinates a summer food program, distributing free meals to kids 18 and younger throughout the County.

These efforts ensure children arrive at school prepared to learn. Results include improved academic performance and decreased behavioral issues.
