BRASS HAT CAFE TURNS UP THE HEAT FOR CELEBRATORY
COMMUNITY COOKOUT

WESTMINSTER, MD (April 5, 2018) — The Carroll County community will receive a tasty treat this spring at Brass Hat Café’s upcoming Community Spring Fling Cookout.

Since opening its doors in April 2017, The Salvation Army’s complimentary bistro, Brass Hat Café, has provided more than 11,000 free, hot meals to over 2,000 households in Westminster.

To celebrate their opening year, Brass Hat Café, located at 300 Hahn Road, Westminster, MD 21157, will host their Community Spring Fling Cookout on Wednesday, April 18 at 4:30pm. Guests will enjoy a free, outdoor BBQ, along with refreshments, prizes, and games for kids.

“We wanted to do something different and exciting to celebrate Brass Hat Café’s one-year anniversary. The cookout is an opportunity for our customers and supporters to celebrate us, as well as a fun way to introduce our program to new people.” – Nina Christian, Unit Director.

With limited options to evening meal centers in Westminster, Brass Hat Café was designed to bridge that gap for people in need, no questions asked.

Brass Hat Café is open every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, from 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm.  To learn more about Brass Hat Café, please call 410-876-9358 or visit www.salvationarmycm.org.

BALTIMORE ELECTED OFFICIALS TO SUPPORT GRAND OPENING OF SALVATION ARMY’S FIRST GROCERY STORE
BALTIMORE, MD (March 1, 2018) —To commemorate the historical opening of The Salvation Army’s first grocery store, more than 100 local and national stakeholders, including Mayor Catherine Pugh, Salvation Army USA Southern Territory Leader Commissioner Howell, BGE, and The Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, will be attending the grand opening of DMG Foods grocery store on March 7, 2018 at 11am in Baltimore, Maryland.

Located in a healthy food priority area, DMG Foods will provide fresh and affordable produce to 1,200 families annually and open at least 15 jobs within the community. It is believed to be the first grocery store in the nation to combine social service with a traditional grocery shopping experience, and will provide nutritional guidance, shopping education, and meal planning, and workforce development.

The Salvation Army of Central Maryland worked with the Baltimore Development Corp, The Baltimore Food Initiative, and The Maryland Food Bank to design the concept and program.

This program is committed to offering exceptional values to the public through their weekly ads and their loyalty program. In addition to in-house savings, customers that self-identify as government assistance recipients, via online or kiosk registration, qualify for complimentary food items, once a month.

After the ribbon cutting ceremony, DMG Foods, which is located at 400 E 29th St, Baltimore, MD 21218, will be open to the public. Hours of operation are Monday – Saturday, 7am – 7pm.

Media personnel is welcome to schedule a tour of the facility prior to the grand opening.

SALVATION ARMY BALTIMORE CHRISTMAS WAREHOUSE BURGLARIZED

BALTIMORE, MD (December 1, 2017) — The Salvation Army warehouse, located on 400 E 29th St, Baltimore, MD 21218, which provides thousands of families with toys and clothes for their Christmas assistance program every year, was burglarized around 10pm last night. This incident is the third time the facility has been raided since Thanksgiving.

The organization has now lost tens of thousands of dollars in construction tools, as well as Christmas toys and clothes for underprivileged children.

The warehouse also houses the organization’s upcoming 7,000 square foot non-profit grocery store, DMG Foods, which will be the first of its kind in Salvation Army history. The grocery store, which is designed to expand food availability for the community, was set to open its doors on January 15, 2018.

With both the grocery store grand opening and Christmas distribution rapidly approaching, the burglary of the warehouse is a devastating loss for The Salvation Army of Central Maryland. Salvation Army personnel is now heightening security for the facility in order to uphold their commitment to serving the community.

“The toys that were stolen were identified for the children of this community,” Major Gene A. Hogg, Salvation Army officer. “We are disheartened that something that is designed to help children and the community itself has been taken advantage of in such a hostile way.”

If you know anything about this theft, please call the Baltimore Police Department.

Companies Support Thanksgiving Baskets for Families in Need

Through the support of local corporations and families, The Salvation Army of Central Maryland provides families with food baskets and gift cards every Thanksgiving.

On November 20, Structural Group held a corporate Thanksgiving food drive at their main office in Columbia, MD. The food drive benefited Salvation Army clients in Howard County.

Structural Group donated over 2,500 pounds of Thanksgiving food boxes to support local families in need. Each box contained a variety of non-perishables including canned vegetables, cranberry sauce, gravy, and stuffing.

In addition to their contribution for the holidays, other donated non-holiday themed food items such as sugar, pasta, and peanut butter were used to stock The Salvation Army’s Howard County Service Center food pantry.

The onsite food pantry, which is located at all family service centers, is stocked with nonperishable food and toiletry items to provide walk in or scheduled clients with grocery assistance, throughout the year.

 

 For the past 5 years, The Salvation Army of Central Maryland has partnered with The Cheesecake Factory by the Baltimore Inner Harbor for Thanksgiving. This year, The Cheesecake Factory personnel prepared and cooked 30 turkeys to serve to Baltimore families in need.
