EASTON — Rebecca Warrington, owner of Shapers Hair Salon, and her husband Dan Warrington, owner of Warrington Builders, believe in giving back to their community. Every Christmas, the Warringtons sponsor a poinsettia sale to support local causes. The proceeds will benefit Food for Learning, Critchlow Adkins Children’s Centers and CarePacks of Talbot County.
Poinsettias can be purchased at Shapers at 413 Needwood Ave., Easton. Small poinsettias are $16, large poinsettias and hanging baskets are $28, and will be for sale while supplies last.
Food for Learning is a group of Caroline County volunteers who are passionate about raising funds to end childhood hunger in Caroline County. Hungry children struggle to learn and consistently under-perform their peers. This has lifelong implications that limit their potential. Ensuring children have access to the nutrition they need will help them grow up to be healthy and productive members of our community
Caroline County Public Schools provides children in need with backpacks filled with food every Friday. This gives kids the nourishment they need to arrive at school alert and ready to learn on Monday. Funds raised by Food for Learning help support the Backpack Program and/or summer meals programs.

CarePacks is a weekend food program aimed at preventing hunger among Talbot County’s most economically vulnerable students. Its goal is to provide every eligible student with a backpack filled with healthy, easily accessible meals and snacks every Friday afternoon so when students return to school on Mondays, they are well-nourished and ready to learn. CarePacks serves all Talbot County schools.
CarePack’s hope is for students to better be able to focus on academic success because they are no longer distracted by hunger or by concerns about where their next meal is coming from. To learn more about CarePacks, visit www.eescarepacks.org.
