Give Monthly: Help Others When Help is Needed Most

February 29th, 2016

Kate and James Guyton love the ease of monthly giving; they set up a recurring donation on our website, and their credit card is automatically charged each month. “Monthly giving is the best thing ever: we don’t have to remember to give, and we aren’t waiting for the perfect scenario. I love knowing that, when we give to Paul’s Place every month, we are helping the people who need it most when they need it most,” explained Kate on why her family chose to make monthly donations.

They chose Paul’s Place because they loved that we are locally focused and clear about what we do and why, that our range of services address the needs of the whole person in their community, and that there is not just one way to help. Kate and James found Paul’s Place when they moved back to Baltimore in 2001 and were looking for ways to give back, and they have helped in a variety of ways in the years since. They have donated clothing to our Market Place, and every year, Kate takes their three kids shopping for toys to donate to our Holiday Gift Shop. The family has also volunteered to shop for and prepare snacks for the week our summer camp is at their church, Church of the Redeemer. Paul’s Place embraced their generosity each time they gave, and that appreciation prompted them to start making unrestricted monthly donations four years ago.

Like Kate and James, you can sustain our work month in and month out knowing that your contribution is helping adults and children in Southwest Baltimore when they need it most. And, your monthly contribution to Paul’s Place adds up quickly to make a big difference.

Here are just a few examples:

  • $10/month fills 20 bags of food for families in crisis
  • $20/month makes health screenings available for four adults
  • $50/month allows two high school students to visit a local college
  • $100/month provides case management for three months for one family

Make your monthly gift online.


Thank you to the Paul’s Place Sustainers who give monthly to support our mission in Southwest Baltimore!
