Fighting Hunger in Baltimore and Beyond with the Baltimore Hunger Project

Fighting Hunger in Baltimore and Beyond with the Baltimore Hunger Project

By Dan Taylor, Marketing Coordinator

ELLICOTT CITY, MD- Poverty in and around Maryland is not unique compared to the rest of the country. The war on childhood poverty is ever present. That’s why Trilogy Wellness is asking its patients and guests to help donate to a worthy cause.

The Baltimore Hunger Project is teaming up with Trilogy Wellness the entire month of January through mid-February.

“To be able to pair up with a non-profit that is fighting childhood poverty daily, is an extremely rewarding program to be associated with,” said Trilogy Wellness Marketing and Sales Director, Jaime Elwood. “We have a very compassionate and warm base of patients and guests. They are always on board to help in any way they can.”

Trilogy partnered with the organization back in late November. This charity drive has allowed Trilogy to bring in over $2,000 for the Baltimore Hunger Project. The organization’s goal is to eliminate weekend childhood hunger by what’s known as the “hunger gap.” That is when children go hungry from Friday afternoon until Monday morning.

According to the Maryland Hunger Solutions, nearly 94% of Baltimore City students (71,581 children) and 66% of Baltimore County students (73,677 children) are considered food insecure and participate in the free and reduced-price meals program (FARMS). Leaders with the Baltimore Hunger Project, says this equates to more than 145,000 students in our region who may struggle with hunger when school is not in session.

Providing food not only provides nourishment that can help improve a child’s health, but also their chances of learning better when they’re not hungry.

If you donate at least $5.00, Trilogy Wellness will provide you will a $5.00 bounce back card to use during your next visit.

Please consider donating to this worthy cause the next time you stop into Trilogy Wellness. Just ask for the donation box.

Proton Center & Rise Above Animal Rescue Community Drive Recap

Proton Center & Rise Above Animal Rescue Community Drive Recap

We are big on supporting our community at Trilogy Wellness. In April and May we had two incredibly successful community drives in support of the Maryland Proton Center and Rise Above Animal Rescue.

The Maryland Proton Center is an organization near and dear to our hearts. Our very own Adam Scher received treatment there for a brain tumor several years ago. With the support of our generous patients and co-sponsor Culta, we raised $2500 for the Proton Treatment Center! This money will go to help pay for treatments, transportation and other costs associated – your donation could help save a life.

Rise Above Animal Rescue & Sanctuary is a local non-profit based out of Pasadena, MD. They focus on animals that need the most help – the sick, injured, elderly & others in need of medical attention. We held an adoption event on site 5/28/2023 and it ended up being a HISTORICAL event for Rise Above! We found furever homes for 10 animals in need. With your generous donations and the help of our co-sponsor Grow West, we were able to raise $1400 for the organization.

A happy puppy who was adopted out.
So many of these animals found furever homes thanks to amazing people like YOU.

We cannot thank our amazing customers enough for opening your hearts and wallets and giving back to the community. We are looking forward to more successful endeavors in the future!

We are ECSTRONG – Community Drive Update!

A big Thank You to all of our amazing patients for your support of our Spring ECSTRONG Community Drive to raise money for Ellicott City Partnership. The Ellicott City Partnership is a 501(C)3 Non-Profit organization hat works to preserve the heritage and vitality of historic Ellicott City, Maryland while creating and enhancing economic growth. We partnered with Amber Extracts to create a limited edition Tangerine Dream ECSTRONG Sauce Vape Cart that had over 12% terpenes! We featured this Vape Cartridge on sale and then donated $3 of every purchase directly to EC Partnership. Between Vape cart sales & patient donations we raised $1277 in donations for Ellicott City Patnership! If you have been a patient of ours for awhile you know how near and dear Old Ellicott City is to our hearts. We had only been open for a couple of months when the last devastating flood hit in 2018 and we felt an immediate need to help support local businesses who were impacted. We wanted to go big this year in support of our amazing town, so we decided to also be a sponsor of Springfest in Old Ellicott City. It was the first time the festival was back since Covid began and it was a blast. We had a tent set up with free water bottles & reusable grocery bags for attendees plus special dog CBD treats from our friends at cbdMD. We are so proud to be a part of Ellicott City and we recognize that we have the best patients ever! Thank You for your continued support.
