Jerilynn Reid Memorial
Fundraising Campaign

Recently, ACDC was blessed to obtain office space on the second floor of a Church Square neighborhood shopping center. This addition will allow ACDC to open an Afterschool Program complete with STEAM activities, healthy snacks for children, and provide Healthcare Vocational Training for underemployed residents of Baltimore. 

With these expanded services, ACDC will have the capability to continue with the 4H club, in partnership with the University of Maryland Extension, and the provision of educational counseling to low income individuals.  

Ms. Jerilynn Reid’s community activism was extensive. As a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Jeri, participated in numerous programs and events focused on community service.  Jeri worked with Delta Academy the Sorority’s Growing and Empowering Myself Successfully (G.E.M.S) and Empowering Males to Build Opportunities for Developing Independence (EMBODI).  While president of the Baltimore County Alumnae Chapter (BCAC), she received two community service awards: 2015 NAACP Freedom Fund Award and a Citation Award from Delegate Jay Jalisi.  She was heavily involved in her chapter’s Juneteenth Celebrations, and maintained continuous community outreach through the Outreach Center, providing such activities as STEM education, mental, physical, and academic enrichment activities to the youth. Upon her passing, former Baltimore County Executive, Kevin Kamenetz declared February 18, 2018 as Jerilynn Reid’s Day.  BCAC honors her legacy during their Annual Impact Day of Service, a day centered around public service initiatives.   She was also a proud and dedicated member of the Order of the Eastern Star. Considering this legacy, our Board of Directors unanimously support the naming of this “Learning Center” in honor of her memory and notable accomplishments. 

Our funding goal is $25,000 to make the Center operational. Giving Levels are as follows:

  1. $500 and above- Sponsors (special recognition for organizations/individuals within the Loft).
