This week’s Kindness Club activity? Help a hungry family!

Next week is Thanksgiving and we know that many families are struggling with hunger. COVID has presented additional challenges for organizations trying to fill this need — and for those wanting to donate too. So we’ve identified ways that you can safely help! We’ll continue to add information and opportunities as we come across them. Know of another way to help hungry families? Email us and we’ll add it to the list!

Don’t forget to post your Kindness in Action and tag us (@coolprogeny) so we can see!⠀

Kindness Club: Help a Hungry Family

Donate to the Maryland Food Bank through Eddie’s of Roland Park

Eddie’s of Roland Park is hosting a Virtual Food Drive to help combat hunger in our community.  Instead of donating a canned item or making an extra trip to the store, simply fill your virtual cart with any of the items from the Virtual Food Drive website and check out. You can make a virtual cart donation now through January 10, 2021.

Drop of a (Scheduled) Food Donation to Living Classrooms

Every year Living Classrooms Foundation provides more than 400 Baltimore City families with a traditional Thanksgiving meal including a turkey and all the trimmings. Want to help? Check out their Thanksgiving Day “Shopping List.”  Then schedule a drop off time from now until November 20th in order to provide a safe, socially distanced environment for all volunteers. 

Make a Donation to Baltimore Hunger Project 

Baltimore Hunger Project is dedicated to eliminating the growing problem of weekend childhood hunger by feeding bodies and minds. They are bridging the gap between Friday and Monday by consistently providing weekend food packages to children identified as food insecure, in a compassionate and dignified manner. You can donate to them by purchasing items from their Amazon Wishlist and have it shipped directly to them.
