Baltimore County, Md. — Community College of Baltimore County, Dundalk will host its annual Winter Bazaar 11 a.m.–3 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 5 in the College Community Center Lobby at 7200 Sollers Point Road. The Winter Bazaar is a fundraiser to benefit the CCBC Dundalk Student Life Pantry.

The CCBC Dundalk Winter Bazaar is free and open to the public, featuring a wide variety of holiday items and gift ideas for family, friends and even pets. Local vendors will be on site with handmade crafts, artwork, jewelry and more.

Over the past year, CCBC Student Life Pantries have distributed more than 24,000 items to aid CCBC students and their families. But the struggle goes beyond the boundaries of CCBC. According to a 2019 study performed by the Hope Center for College, Community and Justice, approximately 48 percent of community college students are food insecure.
