Our mission has always been to provide job training and employment for those in Baltimore who need it most, including those seeking a path out of poverty after being incarcerated. We currently employ about 170 people, and we know that many of our staff live paycheck to paycheck with no security blanket. We are doing everything in our power to keep their hours as consistent as possible with proper precautions, while we also pursue additional governmental resources.
On a very practical level, we have established a FOOD PANTRY for our employees to help make sure they have the essentials they need. We are accepting contributions of nonperishable food and household items (canned goods, bottled water, toilet paper, etc.), which can be dropped off at our drop-off/pick-up area Thursday through Sunday during our regular 9 to 5 store hours. Donated items are being sanitized before they are distributed to our employees. You are invited to help if you are able….
Together, we’ll get through this!
P.S. If you’d like to make a cash contribution instead, please use this form.
