2016 Christmas Food Drive

 

The 2nd Liberty Gun Club, and members of Maryland’s 2A community, in association with 2AinMD, Maryland Shall Issue, and VooDoo Hound services, present the 2016 Christmas food drive to benefit the MLK Jr Community Center in West Baltimore.

 “This summer we were working with Maj Toure to help him bring Black Guns Matter to West Baltimore. We tried several venues, but we were turned away. When we contacted “Squeaky” Kirk at the MLK Jr Community Center, he said it was a great idea and welcomed us with open arms and an open mind. Squeaky invited us to tour the center and when I got there I was impressed. They are trying hard to make a positive impact on that neighborhood. They are doing good work, but they always need more resources. This is how we can help them as a thank you for helping us.”

We want to collect food items and personal hygiene products for the community center. Squeaky already distributes food boxes to the neighborhood on a weekly basis, but many of the products are donated and expiring. He says there is a great need for the following items, especially the hygiene items, as these are typically not donated. The following is a list of suggested donations and drop off locations in the central Maryland region, were members of our community have volunteered to collect and store your donations.
