Helping Ellicott City Flood Victims Through Grassroots

Thank you to everyone who has expressed interest in helping the people affected by the recent flood in Ellicott City.  Grassroots is in need of the following to best serve as a resource to those experiencing a housing crisis:

  • Financial contributions to provide emergency motel shelter to individuals and families who have become temporarily homeless.  Please drop off or mail checks to Grassroots, 6700 Freetown Road, Columbia, MD 21044.  Please mark “Flood” in memo field or click here to donate via credit card through our web site.
  • Gift Cards to Target, Walmart, various gas stations, Giant Food, and Safeway.  This will allow us to help many people with a variety of needs.
  • Please donate food items to the Community Action Council of Howard County.  Their food bank is located at 8920 Route 108, Suite A, Columbia, Maryland 21045.  We will coordinate with them to get food to those people we put up in motel.
  • Sorry but we cannot accept clothing because we don’t have storage space.  Please donate gift cards in lieu of clothing.
