With a week to go until Christmas, city residents are showing the holiday spirit in a number of ways, not the least of which is giving.
Residents filled O’Donnell square with gifts last Sunday, which Southeast police officers picked up to distribute to needy kids.
The Downtown Baltimore Family Alliance’s annual city-wide Adopt a Family drive was a huge success, reported DBFA Communications Director Patrick Gutierrez.
“We were thrilled with the overwhelming response from Baltimore families,” he said. “This year, we had a record 288 needy families that we served, through over 300 businesses and residents.”
“As more families continue to choose to live in the city, projects like this one will only get bigger and better,” he added.
