BALTIMORE — Bee and D’s Baltimore Love, Inc. isn’t letting COVID-19 stop them from helping those in need.
“There’s a lot of people in Baltimore hurting right now who are not used to experiencing this," said Brian Dolbow. “So many more people are out of work and really hurting, and the level of food insecurity in Baltimore is skyrocketing.”
Dolbow and Bee and D’s have done food giveaways for 7 years.
“Typically we do a sit down dinner for the homeless and for those in need,” Dolbow said. “Since we have COVID this year we have had to kind of reinvent the wheel and see what we could do in place of the sit down dinner.”
This year to keep the love going they are doing a grocery giveaway for 200 families in need in West Baltimore.
Since they can’t have a gathering, they will have a virtual sit-down dinner with live entertainment and the presentation of the Demetrios Mallisham award. It's an honor given to an individual who’s made a difference.
They don't just give back to those in need for Thanksgiving.
“The last Sunday of every month B and Dee’s has their monthly event called lunch patrol where we provide brown bag lunches to those in need in various neighborhoods throughout Baltimore City.”
Keeping the love going when it’s needed most.
The first 200 people can pick up their groceries at the Druid Heights Community Development Corporation at 2140 McCulloh St. starting at 1 p.m.
Masks and social distancing are required, if you don’t have a mask they will give you one.
