Take time to help victims of hurricane

For the month of September, the Glen Burnie Mall, at 6711 Ritchie Highway, has been sponsoring a fund-raising drive to benefit the American Red Cross' Hurricane Andrew Disaster relief efforts.

The effort will continue at least through this week.

During regular mall hours -- 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday -- shoppers can drop off their tax-deductible contribution to the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund at the Frequent Shopper Information Center across from Montgomery Ward.

Paula Assero, the assistant manager of the mall, says various contractors who have worked for the mall and mall employees are chipping in to assist in the effort.

In addition, mall merchants are adding to the fund.

This effort by the mall is only one of many that have taken place in the area since the disaster hit south Florida.

According to Linda Lein, spokeswoman for the Central Maryland Red Cross, Glen Burnie "has been as responsive as other Maryland communities in terms of volunteer manpower as well as financial contributions."

Contributions can also be made directly to the American Red Cross. The local Glen Burnie Office is located at 30 Green Way, N.W., and the Baltimore Office is P.O Box Disaster Relief, Baltimore 21263.
