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. 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…)

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.

Baltimore is rich in diverse neighborhoods, but those neighborhoods themselves are not always financially stable and thriving. In fact, no matter how well off a neighborhood may seem – there is always someone in need who could benefit from a helping hand.

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. Let’s talk about how My Brother’s Keeper can help you leave behind a legacy of generosity to the Irvington community you know and love. (more…)
