PurposeSince 2001 Sandi and Matthew have been collecting funds every year that they then use to purchase Teddy Bears/ stuffed animals, and with the assistance of Santa and Mrs. Claus they deliver the toys to the Pediatric Oncology Units at both Sinai and Johns Hopkins Children's Centers in Baltimore. These 2 hospitals provide children of all ages with the needed medical care at a very crucial time in their young lives. We in-turn provide the families with a simple gift that carries them through a difficult time and beyond. Camelot West is also a good starting point for information on obtaining assistance in the community for families who are looking for support groups, government non-profits and Special Needs services. It is our Mission to give people in our community “A Hand Up not a Hand Out” and working with groups such as the Community Foundation of Carroll County, Get Connected and other non-profits in the community we do our best to assist those who need it.
ServiceOne of the many services we offer is sponsoring Santa and Mrs. Claus for the City of Westminster since 2012. Santa and Mrs. Claus can be seen in the Miracle on Main Street Holiday parade, the tree lighting and Santa's Treats at the Westminster Library. Children can visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus at their little Westminster House on the front lawn of the Library every Saturday 12-4pm. between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Parents may take their own pictures in a calm relaxed setting. Santa has also been known to have his picture taken with dogs, cats and even a rabbit or two. In 2018 Santa and Mrs. Claus started seeing families at the Carroll County Farm Museum every Sunday from 12-4pm as well. (No pets allowed at the Museum though) Santa and Mrs. Claus have been seen hosting Breakfast with Santa at the Carroll County Career and Tech Center, making Holiday decorations, attending holiday and birthday parties, along with reading stories to children at Nature Centers, Hampstead elementary School and other locations around the community. In 2020 Santa and Mrs. Claus joined the electronic age and participated in Zoom and TEAMs calls with the Carroll County Library and Sinai Hospital. They attended Drive-by Meetings with Santa and Mrs. Claus along with several other opportunities that allowed children in the community to tell Santa what they would like for Christmas. Santa and Mrs. Claus have attending Special events such as Sensory Santa hosted by the Carroll County Family Support Network for Children with Special Needs and Adaptive Parks and Recreation's Jingle Bell Hop both held at Carroll Springs Elementary School, Cookies With Santa at Hampstead Elementary School, and patronizing local restaurants such as O'Lordan's, Johansson's, Classico Pizzeria, JeannieBird Baking Company and tCup cafe in the Month of December.
