Forever Free Books
Forever Free Books is a nonprofit mobile literacy organization that provides access to FREE books to children in need. Forever Free Books delivers books to children in an effort to ensure that all children have an opportunity to have books to read at home. Their organization primarily targets children in low income areas, but will never turn down a child who requests a free book, regardless of financial background. Through partnerships with other community organizations and assessments of the needs of communities in relation to illiteracy, Forever Free Books develops programs to address the achievement gap through book distributions, tutoring, and story time. Forever Free Books also hosts numerous book drives and book distributions throughout the year. Currently they are partnered with Athletes for Charity and the Magic Johnson Foundation for literacy projects in the DMV area. Forever Free Books has delivered over 500 books to inner city children in honor of International Literacy Day with two Baltimore Ravens, Courtney Upshaw and DeAngelo Tyson and have also participated in the dedication of the brand new Magic Reading Lounge by donating 100 books to the Magic Johnson Empowerment Center in Baltimore.

Two Baltimore women, Earnestine McCollum and Beatrice Strouse, had a common conviction — nutritious meals for the aging was a genuine need in the Baltimore area. In 1960, they replicated a meal delivery program that originated in London, England. On October 3rd that same year, the first 10 Meals on Wheels clients were served a hot meal lovingly prepared and delivered by dedicated volunteers. Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland is now one of the oldest nonprofit, home-delivered meal programs in the country, serving more than 700,000 meals annually. Meals on Wheels' approach, to provide nutritious meals, personal contact, community connections and safety-net services, distinguishes them from other home delivered meal programs. Today, Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland is one of the largest Meals on Wheels programs in the country thanks to the sustained commitment of their volunteers, staff and donors who live and work in the local communities where they serve. Each day, more than 27 Meals on Wheels vans and 1,700 volunteers hit the road to deliver “more than a meal.” Visit Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland's Website.
