Crofton CrossFit in Gambrills, MD is hosting a food and clothing drive to benefit MBK! Read this post to find out how you can, too. We thank you in advance, as your charitable donations will help MBK provide food security and clothing for those in need. 

At My Brother’s Keeper, we aim to be a neighborhood caregiver for the less fortunate members of our Baltimore community – but we couldn’t do it without your generous help. As the weather grows colder, many members of the homeless community (as well as those families and individuals who live below the poverty line) will struggle to find adequate clothing, shelter, and nourishment. During this season of generosity, we are asking that you consider hosting a clothing and/or food drive to benefit MBK. Keep reading to learn more about the items on our donations wish-list and how you can donate today. (more…)
