Resources for Community


We will be updating this list throughout the COVID-19 crisis. If you have information on any important resources for our community, please email our editor Jessica Gregg at [email protected]

How You Can Help

Is your neighborhood engaged in an effort to help others at this time? If so, let us know. Again, you can email our editor Jessica Gregg at [email protected]

  • #CarryoutWednesday (or any day): Support small businesses by ordering carryout from your favorite local restaurant on Wednesday or any day.
  • Baltimore Neighbors: When you purchase merchandise from your favorite small businesses, they receive $10 of the proceeds.
  • Opens Works in Baltimore is making protective face shields for health care personnel. Donate to the effort here. Read about executive director Will Holman who was our Dad Life interview in December. He spoke then of the importance of relying on our villages as parents.

“I don’t want to go out. How can I help?” Easy. Make a contribution to your favorite servers and bartenders through Baltimore Virtual Tip Jar.
