Adopt A Block, Inc., is a non-profit coalition and partnership. It is composed of local churches, the Baltimore City Police Department, City Government, local businesses, community associations, a diversity of social service and health agencies, as well as community residents. Our goal is to work together to bring restoration to our inner city - block by block. We work together to effectively meet the diversified needs of the individual, the family and their community: spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physical, through this organization. We began adopting blocks in the Eastern District of Baltimore City in 1991. We received our tax exempt status in 1994.

Some of the stuff they have is really old and I don't know if anyone would but it... but that might also be my personal taste. But also with a thrift store, I guess you really can only work with the donations you get.
