Loss of a job … death in the family … disability

… these and many more factors are major contributors to financial crisis, and every financial gift to Montgomery County Emergency Assistance (MCEA) makes a tangible, lasting difference in the lives of those in need in Montgomery County.

The two contributors featured below are making a great difference with their donations, and they know with MCEA their donations will go where there is the most need.
