Christmas in April to celebrate change in name Jan. 27

Christmas in April for Anne Arundel County has changed its name to Rebuilding Together for Anne Arundel County to more closely match the national office's identity and the group's 250 affiliates across the United States.

The local organization will receive corporate support from Home Depot, Countrywide, Sprint and others.

In Anne Arundel County, Rebuilding Together will continue its 12-year tradition and mission of repairing Anne Arundel County homes. At least 25 homes will be repaired this year. Four ramps to improve entry access for low-income, disabled homeowners will be built with the help and support of Farmers Bank.

A party to celebrate the name change will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Jan. 27 at the Boatyard Bar and Grill, Fourth Street and Severn Avenue. Admission is free, and the party is open to the public. A cash bar and light fare will be available.
