Youth Job Rolls Open

Rockville's Youth Services Division is accepting applications for youths aged 13 to 15 for the city's Hire-a-Youth program. The program matches young people with residents who want odd jobs performed at their homes.

Those who sign up must attend an orientation, before being referred for a job. The sessions will cover the telephone etiquette, as well as skills in interviewing and applying for a job. Parents are also required to attend the session, which is expected to last one to two hours.

Interested youths should call 424-8000, ext. 380, for details.

Holiday Food Sought

The Rockville government is again seeking donations of nonperishable food and money to help the needy during the winter holiday season.

Last year the city's holiday drive provided 372 people with food for traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

The special services division, which is coordinating the program, asks that those who wish to give money make their checks payable to the Rockville Holiday Fund. Checks may be mailed to the Department of Community Services, Rockville City Hall, Maryland Avenue at Vinson Street, Rockville, 20850.

Donations may be delivered to City Hall, the Lincoln Park Community Center, 357 Frederick Ave., or to the Rockville Senior Center, 1150 Carnation Dr. Hours for collection are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
