    I run a program here in Baltimore that does urban greening, landscape, and litter clean up of vacant lots. The guys are from a rehab setting and are learning skills and practices that can help them gain emplyment when they leave. We help with resumes, applications, and basically how to get a hard day work and not rely on the government for a check.:usflag:
    What we need right now are things like a sledge hammer, a wheel barrow, a backpack blower, and a weedwhacker. Does anyone have any recommendations in the baltimore area somewhere I can look to get these donated or at a cheap price? I am in the whole literally 3k right now, due to repairs on the pick up I bought for them and really need these items. :cry: Thank you so much.
