BCCC’s Alumni Association decided to postpone its annual (face-to-face) crab feast, in response to the pandemic. Wanting to give back to the, alumni members decided to use funds ($660) already allocated for a deposit to purchase face masks and donate to those with greatest need.
The association focused on Baltimore City communities near BCCC that have been hardest hit by COVID-19 and serve vulnerable populations. After making calls, they selected Bon Secours and Forest Park since they were most in need.
A face mask shortage in Maryland was causing them to purchase out of state. Stock came in at Baltimore’s Medical Supply Co. Inc., allowing them to keep their efforts local.
