Community

Spring cleaning is a fantastic time to freshen up your home and give back to your community.

While the weather we’ve been having lately may lead you to believe otherwise, spring is finally here! We tend to think of spring as a time for rejuvenation and freshness, which comes as no surprise considering how often we associate spring with the concept of spring cleaning. Spring cleaning is a fantastic way to take stock of what you have in your home and clean out everything that has become unnecessary, but it’s also a great time to give back to your community and redistribute the resources you have but don’t really need.

Spring Cleaning: The Perfect Time to Donate

Monday, April 3rd, 2017
Donations

Spring is a great time to clean up your home and donate anything you don’t need.

A lot of us use spring as a time to purge our homes of things we don’t need through donations. Maybe you have some clothes that no longer fit, cans of food you aren’t really planning on using, basics like paper towels that you bought too much of. While searching your home for goods you no longer need, it’s time to start considering donating. Donating not only helps those in need, but it’ll make you feel good as well. Here is some more info about where you can donate this spring!

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.

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…)

It’s a beautiful thing to give back to the community you grew up in well after you have made your peace, thus improving the quality of life for the generations to come.

Irvington isn’t just a southwest Baltimore neighborhood, it’s a true community full of hard working and devoted people who want the best quality of life for themselves and their neighbors.
