Maryland Call to Action - Relief and Recovery

We have heard from Marylanders across our great state who want to help those affected by the recent hurricanes. After reaching out to the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Florida, and Texas, Governor Larry Hogan created Maryland Call to Action: Relief & Recovery to help those affected by natural disasters. The purpose of this site is to connect Maryland citizens with organizations in need of donations and volunteers.

Many of our residents have personally reached out to my office, asking for ways they can help, and Maryland Call to Action: Relief & Recovery was created to answer that demand.”
