Christmas and Giving to the Baltimore Community

You never know who will stop in
This time of year, those of us who are lucky to have family, homes, food and clothing often look to ways we can help those in need. Especially poignant this year are images from around the world where children's most basic needs and freedoms are in limbo. We want to help the world, but also see the need present in our own communities every day.

Holidays and Family
In Baltimore, we are lucky to have many worthwhile charities that help and support children.  At Valley View Farms, are pleased to be associated with the WBAL Radio Kids Campaign' throughout the year, especially at Christmas. WBAL Radio has been broadcasting from Valley View Farms on the days leading up to Christmas for over 20 years. Companies and individuals have donated millions of dollars over that time. The personnel at the radio station distributes the monies directly to people who serve the children in our area. Click here to visit the WBAL Radio Kids Campaign website to see who has benefited from the generous donations. Its nice to know that WBAL uses 100% of the monies for distribution to those children in need. Postage, administrative costs and fundraising are all absorbed by the station.
On December 23 and 24 this year, WBAL Radio will be broadcasting live from Valley View Farms beginning at 5 am.

Keith, Mary Beth and Bryan
Bryan Nehman, Mary Beth Marsden, Brent Hardesty, Keith Mills, and others will be here to share stories, music and fun with everyone who stops in or listens to the show. Local choirs spread goodwill through song,
surprise guests are sure to stop in and the all important donations just keep coming. Classrooms of children who save coins for others, large groups and families come together and local companies give  much back to their communities on these days.
The stories are real, heartwarming and inspirational. We encourage everyone to be a part of this special event. We are reminded of all the good people in Baltimore and surrounding communities.
