Glen Burnie, Maryland. This area named “Tent City” used to be a thriving outdoor tented community until years ago “something tragic” happened, says Doug, a former resident. Now the area has fewer residents but is still a community in the middle of urban sprawl. These images are from an outing on December 23, 2009 where myself and another volunteer of Giving Back, Linda’s Legacy based in Annapolis, Maryland brought new backpacks full of warm winter clothing to the Arundel House of Hope a “Homeless Resource & Day Center & Winter Relief Intake.” One of the employees of the Arundel House, along with Doug, took us to “Tent City” so we could meet the people the backpacks were going to. Every single person throughout the day was gracious and gave either a handshake or hug. My hope is that these images will be used to increase backpack and clothing donations year-round for these organizations.
