Liberty Residents: Let’s Give Back To Baltimore Our CommunityNovember 19, 2020
Throughout the year, but particularly around the holidays, Liberty encourages residents to give back to Charm City by shopping small, donating, and/or volunteering. Now, more-than-ever, it’s important to safely strengthen, support, and build our community and its networks. Remember, “It’s not about how much we give, but about how much love we put in giving,” said Mother Teresa. Let’s work together to give back and help the future of Baltimore. Give Back Liberty residents can give back to our community through these upcoming volunteering events and drives. Let’s come together and flourish in Charm City.
