the project

All ‘Bout Progress (A.B.P) is a community-centered non-profit organization whose mission is to change the trajectory of Pocomoke’s at-risk youth.  Our program focuses on four main pillars of change: mentoring/relationship building, community service, leadership development and social-emotional development. 

Pocomoke, MD is located on the rural Eastern Shore of Maryland.  Our student population is of 45% African American and 43% Caucasian students, with 12% being Asian, Hispanic or two or more ethnicities.  With 69% of our students receiving free or reduced meals, the hurdles they must overcome are great.  Many of our students live in communities, and within families, that struggle financially.  The holiday season brings many opprotunies for joy! However, for these families, the holidays often mean stress and dissapointment.  

Through our "Season of Joy" campaign, A.B.P hopes to bless families in our community with the gift of Christmas.  Through your generous donations, children from these selected families will recieve clothing, toys and other essential items.  

the steps

December 20th - December 22nd - Gifts will be delivered to families.

why we're doing it

Franklin D. Roosevelt once said “We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.” All ‘Bout Progress was created with a vision of change, and we see that potential in the youth of Pocomoke. By relieving the hardship of the holidays, we allow these families to focus on what is important...their children
