Giving Back, Linda’s Legacy: Homeless Drive Seeking Volunteers and Donations
12/22/2017, 6 a.m.
ANNAPOLIS Warm your soul this holiday season by helping Giving Back, Linda’s Legacy’s mission to bring warm clothes and other necessities to people in need and be a part of a volunteer experience for families and young adults that is meaningful, educational and fun.
Each Holiday Season for over the last 30 years ago, Linda Greenberg has delivered gloves, hats, thermal underwear and other essentials to homeless men, women and children in Baltimore City, and Baltimore and Anne Arundel County.
What started as a trunk-load and a prayer grew into a massive 27 U-Hauls filled truck delivered last year.
Thirty-one shelters were served in 2016, in addition to hundreds living on the streets.This year, you can help Giving Back, Linda’s Legacy, with its mission by volunteering time or donating goods or money.
Volunteers (no experience necessary) are needed to help sort and pack donated goods at the Anne Arundel County Farmers Market on Riva Road from Tuesday, December 26 to Thursday December 28, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. This is an excellent way for students to earn community service hours.
Also needed are volunteers to help with delivery runs on Friday, December 29, 2017. We will gather at the Annapolis Park N Ride on Riva Road starting at 8 a.m. and each group will caravan following two trucks to the designated shelter locations. Each group can visit two shelters, distributing goods and food, singing carols and enjoying fellowship.
Giving Back, Linda’s Legacy will be collecting new/gently used clothing, all sizes, ages and both genders, shoes, baby items and diapers, bedding, sleeping bags, household cleaning supplies, non-perishable food items and toiletries. You may bring them to the Annapolis Farmers Market on Riva Road from December 26 to December 28.
If you are unable to volunteer or shop, financial donations are always appreciated for use in filling backpacks with essentials. All donations are tax deductible. Please mail donations to Post Office Box 461, Severna Park, MD 21146.
