2nd Annual AIRS | EHM | City Steps Holiday Campaign
December 22, 2017

The teams at A.I.R.S. | Empire Homes of Maryland, Inc. | City Steps have launched our 2nd Annual Holiday Campaign to benefit the minor children of our clients. We have adopted 100 children (infants - 13 years) this year and with your help we hope we will brighten the spirits of all of them this holiday season. Our goal is to provide each child with new clothing and toys this winter. We have collected their clothing sizes and "wish lists" but we need your support to reach this goal. Your donation of $150 will complete a child's wish list and provide them with weather appropriate clothing. Follow our donate link to sponsor a child this holiday season. Any donation, large or small, will help to ensure that the holiday spirit touches some of the most vulnerable citizens in the Baltimore area.

AIRS | EHM | City Steps #GivingTuesday 2017
November 28, 2017

Support AIRS | EHM | City Steps this #GivingTuesday!

Giving Tuesday was established in 2012 as a global day of giving. The first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, it follows the retail/consumer based Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday as a way for individuals to support the causes and issues important to them with charitable giving.

This year our goal is to raise $10,000 on #GivingTuesday to support our supportive housing programs. Every dollar raised helps ensure that the most vulnerable citizens of Baltimore City and County have access to affordable housing and the support services necessary to become self-sufficient.

Go to our Eventbrite or Facebook page for more information.
