12:30 PM EST 11/30 - Brrrissskk weekend greetings to all! In the spirit of giving back to those who serve others, we support the #GivingTuesday movement. Next Tuesday, December 3, consider ways your family or organization can come together to extend a helping hand to those most in need. Some of our suggestions for excellent local programs to explore, and we welcome your recommendations as well!
- The Helping Up Mission in downtown Baltimore. Helping Up is an overnight shelter and long term addiction recovery center for homeless men that builds their resiliency to participate in society with programs to meet physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs (https://www.helpingupmission.org/)
- GatherBaltimore, a local volunteer food stand organization that works to bring healthy food choices to people who lack access to fresh produce. Service includes redistributing unsold produce from the Baltimore City Farmer's Market and gleaning from local farm fields. (http://www.gatherbaltimore.org/)
- Decent Life Volunteers, a Lancaster City-based non profit that builds quality of life opportunities and business skills for under-advantaged families in US cities and also works with overseas children's missions such Kenya's Children and Youth Empowerment Center. (http://www.decentlife.org/)
