Our partners at Business Volunteers Maryland (BVM) have been connecting volunteers with community needs for eighteen years. Those community needs have grown exponentially over the past month as social distancing guidelines seemingly make it much harder for our Baltimore neighbors to do what they’ve always done. Fortunately, where there’s a will, there’s always a way, and BVM is maintaining a web page with up-to-the-minute information on what you can do.

When the COVID-19 Outbreak Hit, That Community Was Behind Them to #inspireaction
At a ceremony at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in 2000 to celebrate what would have been Martin Luther King Jr.’s 71st birthday, the late Coretta Scott King said, "The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members."
That spirit of a compassionate community helped several organizations dedicated to address food insecurity, among other needs, in Baltimore as the pandemic upended service models.
March 31, 2020 /3BL Media/ - In the period of a few short weeks, the way we live and work has been upended. The length of time this “new normal” will last is not yet clear. What is clear is that individuals and non-profits are doing incredible work in local communities around the world in light of the extraordinary reach of the coronavirus pandemic.
