Thank you, Southeast, for your generosity toward Baltimore’s homeless

To all of southeast Baltimore:

Thank you. During the past few weeks, I reached out to community associations, businesses, and individual residents, to collect donations for residents of the city experiencing homelessness.

The immediate outpouring of support from all over Southeast was simply overwhelming. Residents and businesses donated bags and boxes of coats, scarves, blankets, first aid kits and other items throughout the month of January.

The items came from every part of Southeast Baltimore–from Hoehn’s Bakery in Highlandtown and Alliance Realty Group in Greektown; from the Southeast CDC and the Fell’s Point Community Organization; from residents stretching from Little Italy and Upper Fell’s over to Bayview and out to Essex.

The team at Church on the Square in Canton stored the items, and members of the boards of the Baltimore Highlands Neighborhood Association and the Fell’s Point Residents Association, among others, handed them out.

To all of you–thank you for your time, your generosity and your commitment to making Southeast Baltimore a better place to live for those who need it the most.

Jeff Amoros, Community aide, Councilman James Kraft
