Last year, the Holiday Drive provided:

The continued success of the Rockville Holiday Drive depends on a collaborative partnership with local churches, schools, civic organizations, service clubs, businesses, non-profits, and individuals working together to make the holidays special for the less fortunate. On behalf of the City of Rockville and the residents served by the Holiday Drive, thank you for your support!
