POCOMOKE CITY — Buy a dozen doughnuts and help the at-risk youth of Pocomoke City.
That’s what board members of the Save the Youth program in Pocomoke City are hoping, as they launch a Krispy Kreme doughnut fundraiser during February. New event coordinator Miriam Cane came up with the idea to help support the youth program.

After a few years of declining participation by children in the area, Save the Youth is regrouping under a new board and in a new, more welcoming home at 126 Willow St.

New board members Cane, Towan McBride and Terrence Snowden came on board at the January meeting.

Save the Youth was started in 1980 with a mission to “redirect troubled youth from a life of crime and incarceration.” That mission continues today, according to program director Bishop Isaac Jenkins.


The Krispy Kreme doughnuts are available at the Save the Youth office or by calling 410-957-1750.

 Funds raised will be used for field trips, food, equipment and supplies.
