BALTIMORE — A fashion boutique known for its community-oriented events hosted a Thanksgiving giveaway today.
City of Gods has been around for 13 years, and they continue to give back to the community.
On Hollins Street in Baltimore, they spent Thanksgiving morning giving clothes and food to people in need.
“We feed people in need, and we also celebrate,” said Terrance Frazier, owner of City of the Gods.
Frazier said this is their eighth year back at Thanksgiving and they feel it’s more important than ever to keep giving back to the community.
We are currently facing an economic downturn, so many times people feel that they need hope. We’ve been here for 13 years, and we’ve had the recession and COVID so we’re here. As a testimony, if we’re in a community where we support each other and you buy and you give, you’ll find people in the network who will support you,” Frazier said.
“It’s a celebration of family; it’s a celebration of community; it’s a celebration of why Baltimore is special,” said Governor-elect Wes Moore.
Moore spent part of Thanksgiving on the response.
Such events are important so that no one is left behind and everyone has a role in the work being done.
“It’s not just what the government is doing, it’s what you’re doing in the private sector, in small businesses, with charities, with the religious community, with community organizations. It’s not just who’s behind the agenda saying who’s going to benefit, but we want everyone involved in the work,” Moore said.
