Baskets of Hope is a project to help families transitioning from the street into housing by providing household goods, cleaning supplies, and personal care items that are not covered by support programs like WIC or food stamps. This helps families settle more comfortably into their new homes and focus their resources on other essential needs.
This is the first project by World of Love. Our mission is to help spread compassion across the Baltimore community by contributing our time and resources. We hope you’ll get involved and turn each project into a movement of kindness across our community.
How to Help
Fill a laundry basket with the items listed below, and attend one of our drop-off nights to pass it off to our team. Build a basket on your own or get a group of friends and family to assemble a basket together!
Basket Item List
For each basket, we’ve selected a collection of items that many families getting back on their feet are likely to be without. Each basket includes:
Paper Dinner Napkins
Plastic Forks & Spoons
Pot Holders (2)
Toilet Paper (8 rolls)
Toilet Bowl Cleaner
Toilet Bowl Brush
Tooth Brushes (4)
Body Bar Soap
Night Light, 2 pack
First Drop Off: November 17th
Come by Ram’s Head Dockside (1702 Furnace Drive, Glen Burnie, MD) between 6:00 and 9:00 p.m. to drop off your basket, and stay for dinner or drinks!
Second Drop Off: November 19th
Come by G. L. Shacks Grill (583 Frederick Road, Suite 1, Catonsville, MD) between 6:00 and 9:00 p.m. to drop off your basket, and stay for dinner or drinks!
If you’re unable to make it to either drop-off, please send us a message on our homepage.
