Weinberg Housing and Resource Center Seeking Donations

The following is shared directly from a representative at the Weinberg Housing and Resource Center (WHRC), "a low-barrier emergency shelter that provides homeless services to over 275 adult men and women each night in the City of Baltimore."

All donations may be coordinated by contacting WHRC Volunteer Manager Tifani Jackson via email at Tjackson@cc-md.org, or by calling the office line at 667-600-3236 or 3240.


Donations

We are asking for donations for our residents. This includes:

  • Women's undergarments (new)
  • Men's and women's socks (new)
  • Men's and women's pants/jeans/sweats (new or gently used)
  • Blankets and comforters (new)
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Travel-sized toiletries (especially soap and deodorant)
  • Large bars of deodorant

Welcome Baskets

In addition, we also are in need of welcome baskets, which are reserved for residents in the process of entering permanent housing. These baskets provide a valuable springboard for residents to successfully transition from their time at the shelter to independent living. If you have the available time, resources, and initiative, we are requesting your help in replenishing our supply of baskets.

A complete basket includes the following items assembled in a laundry basket or a large trash can:

  • 1 set of twin blankets, sheets, a pillow, and a pillowcase
  • 1 bath towel and 1 washcloth
  • 2 plates, 2 forks, 2 knives, 2 spoons and 2 cups
  • 1 pot and 1 pan
  • 1 shower curtain and 1 set of rings
  • 2 dish towels, 2 oven mitts
  • 1 pack of hangers
  • 10-20 cans or boxes of non-perishable food

However, any contribution, no matter how small, will make a big difference in maintaining the health, well-being, and dignity of those we serve. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns regarding the donation process or the items needed.
