Ways to Donate Items

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the safest and most convenient way for you to donate items for House of Ruth Maryland clients is to use our Amazon wishlist so items are delivered directly to us.

The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Donation Center is open by appointment only during the following times: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 1-6 pm
Location: 2521 N Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21218
To schedule an appointment, contact Penny Riser at priser@hruthmd.org or by phone at 443-569-0463
