Chamber Message for August 6th

Giving your time, services or product is a selfless act. When you volunteer at an organization, non-profit, school, sports program and other opportunities, you are giving one of the most precious things that you can… your time and expertise.

Another way that you can give back is by donating items to a cause. You can give clothing, toiletries, and food to homeless shelters as well as community associations. You can donate money- what non-profit wouldn’t love that! You can donate blankets and food to animal shelters, and the list goes on.

We had amazing businesses who gave to us in order for our Crab Feast to stay affordable this year. We would like to highlight these companies here:

Trinity Lutheran Church– For the venue and the sweetest woman to help us!

Bonnie Heneson Communications: For letting Yenneca help us with the design of our flyers, posters and so much more!

Ristorante Firenze– For the cold beer on tap!

Costco-Owings Mills: For the bottles of water, cans of soda, paper towels and the fabulous cakes and cookies.

ServPro- Reisterstown– For donating the mallets used to eat those delicious crabs

Chick-Fil-A of Foundry Row, Owings Mills & Reisterstown as well as Seasons PizzaOwings Mills : For the chicken and dips

Wegmans of Owings Mills: A gift card to help with the costs of the potato and macaroni salads

Santoni’s Marketplace & Catering: For 20 pounds of their tasty coleslaw!

Reter’s Crab House & Grill: For a GREAT price for the crabs!

All of these companies allowed us to have an amazing crab feast at an affordable price. Please continue to support these local businesses as well as those listed below who financially sponsored the crab feast this year.

Member Highlight: MAC Recycling

Mid-Atlantic Clothing Recycling (MAC) is a professional clothing recycling company. We’re committed to helping American’s achieve another important step in recycling. The recycling of used clothing and shoes.

Many of us want to donate our used clothing to charities like Goodwill, the Salvation Army, St. Vincent DePaul and other worthy causes and we support your generosity and personal decision in every way.

At MAC, our charity of choice, since 2005, is D.A.R.E. America, the highly acclaimed national program that gives kids the skills they need to avoid involvement in drugs, gangs and violence The funds raised for D.A.R.E filter down to the state and local law enforcement agencies who teach the D.A.R.E. program in local school systems.

MAC makes a difference in the community in other significant ways. We offer employment opportunities with safe working environments to those who may not be able to find jobs elsewhere. We believe all resources should be used wisely.

With MAC, your used clothes can go a long way.

Baltimore Humane Society Dog Kennels Damaged From Rains

A Plea For Community Support

July 26, 2018 -Baltimore, MD — Baltimore Humane Society Dog Kennel roofs damaged from rains.

The unrelenting, record-breaking rains this past week have left Baltimore Humane Society with two damaged dog kennels in immediate need of new roofs. Replacing the flat roofs is a costly venture and the no-kill shelter in Reisterstown needs to quickly raise $20,000. Because the private non-profit does not receive operational funding from the government or any national humane society, it relies on the support of the community to help keep its doors open. Without that support the shelter could not save the lives of so many homeless pets in need. The two dog kennels are the only kennels on the premises. All the dogs are still housed in them and being kept safe and dry, but will be a difficult situation with any subsequent rain.
