Activist Seeks Help For Homeless

December 22, 1991

Community activist Linda Greenberg is desperate. Every holiday season, she collects clothing, food and toys and makes the rounds of homeless shelters and Baltimore streets, handing out blankets and bags of good. But this year, the coffers are empty.

Greenberg is asking for donations of warm clothing, disposable diapers and baby formula, sleeping bags and blankets and snack foods and board games.

"It's a chance to save people's lives by keeping them warm and make children happy who otherwise might not get a toy," she says.

Anyone who would like to donate may bring items to Fiddler's Green parking lot at 1355 Generals Highway in Crownsville, near the Crownsvillepost office, today from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Greenberg has collectedgoods for the homeless at Christmas for the past nine years, but this is the first year the donations aren't coming in, she says.

"Last year at one church, there were about 80 mothers with their babies, and we ran out of toys. This year we have almost nothing and desperately need donations for these people."
