Want something positive to do to help our community? Here are two quick ways to help area small businesses shuttered in the effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
- Baltimore Neighbors: When you purchase merchandise from your favorite small businesses, they receive $10 of the proceeds. Check out the lineup of T-shirts and wear your support for your favorite restaurant or shop.
- #CarryoutWednesday was a thing last week, although we think any day is fine to close your home kitchen and get dinner from a Baltimore-area restaurant. Who’s open? Here are a few of the many. If you want to be added to this list, please email our staff writer Adranisha Stephens at [email protected].com. Don’t see your favorite restaurant here? Email us as well.
