Help the Bartko Family Recover

A malicious man may have destroyed their home, but he can't take away their spirit, their faith, or their love for their family, friends, and each other! The Bartko family has lost everything: their house, their posessions, their precious memories, but worse yet, their wonderful pets. If there is ever a family that deserves our help, it is most certainly Rose and Cathy. While justice is being served, let's help Rose and Cathy get back on their feet! Even a small donation can make a difference. Money donated will go towards providing daily necessities, such as shampoo, soap, socks, etc.

Non-monetary donations for the Bartko family can be dropped off at the Baltimore County Bus lot directly across from Kenwood High School at 600 Stemmers Run Road. Their hours are 9am - 5pm.

Mens Jeans: 34/30
Ladies Jeans: 14/16
Hooded Sweatshirts: Large/XLarge
Shoes: 8 and 8.5 Wide
Any warm clothes including jackets, socks, hats and gloves.
