Mask up
Masks remain the best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19. “I can’t volunteer in person,” says Claire Ritterhoff, who has crafted, collected and donated over 300 masks. “But I can use my sewing skills to keep friends, relatives and even people I’ll never meet safe.”
To donate masks, contact donations@hchmd.org.

Look Lively
That’s just what the Johns Hopkins University Zinda dance team did. Through a series of
virtual workshops, they turned living rooms into stages to raise $500 while teaching people
this Bollywood fusion dancing style.
You can start your own fundraiser here. 

Game On
From Fortnite Battle Royales to collecting Pokémon, gamers hosted charity streams on Twitch and encouraged their followers to donate. Jordan Uhl’s charity stream made Fortnite more difficult by forcing players to drop their weapons and dance after each donation, raising over $7,000 for our neighbors without homes. Level up your fundraising by starting a charity stream on Tiltify.com.

Dinner's Served
As part of our Community of Practice on Homelessness, local architecture firm Hord Coplan Macht delivered 100 hot meals to residents at the Westside Men’s Shelter. “Everyone should have access to healthy food. In the midst of the pandemic, we wanted to help our neighbors while also supporting Black-owned restaurants,” says Melanie Ray, Associate at the firm (pictured right at Next Phaze Café). To coordinate a meal delivery, contact us at donations@hchmd.org.
