Our latest issue (#4) is now available free at outlets all over the peninsula. Pick up a copy today and read about the new Rash Field Park, the greening of SoBo, exciting exhibits that have just opened here, and a lot more.
It’s been a busy first year for this community news enterprise. We’re off to a great start, but now we’d like to ask for your help.
This grassroots community-building effort has run mainly on volunteer power and advertising revenue in our newspaper edition. But to make it for the long term, we will also need donations from community members who like what we’ve been doing, whether it’s a deep dive beneath Federal Hill, a tour inside Domino Sugar, kudos to peninsula pandemic heroes, or our online listings of SoBo events and eateries.
Your contribution will go toward doing more of the same. We operate as a nonprofit enterprise: South Baltimore United, Inc. No one draws a salary here. We’re not in it for the money. We’re in it because we love this community and want to see it thrive.
The target of our first GoFundMe campaign is to raise $8,000 by the end of January. This will give us a solid foundation for the newspaper, blog, social media, and community events in 2022, and it will put us in a good position to grow down the road.
I hope you’ll join us in building this enterprise dedicated to fostering a stronger and more connected South Baltimore. Thank you for your support! – Steve Cole, Editor-in-Chief
