Saturday night’s historic flooding in Ellicott City, Woodberry and other areas left locals and local businesses in need of help. On Monday, fundraisers and other ways to help began appearing. Here’s three that involve places you probably already enjoy:

Help Nepenthe Shops in Woodberry’s Meadow Mill were hit hard by the flooding. For Nepenthe Homebrew, it was the second flooding event in three years. This time, it’s worse, the owners wrote. They said they realize asking the community for help is “a lot to ask,” but the community provided a lot of support. The shop’s GoFundMe account recorded nearly $9,000 in a day.

Nacho Mama’s Donates Proceeds A late lunch on Canton Square can provide a boost to another commercial center. All week, Nacho Mama’s is donating 20 percent of proceeds it collects from 2-5 p.m. to Ellicott City.

Fundraiser at Jailbreak Brewing On Thursday, the Laurel brewery is raising money for Ellicott City from 3-10 p.m. Free brewery tours are set, with donations encouraged. Half of the revenue and tips donated will go to recovery efforts. Giggy’s BBQ and Kona Ice will also be onhand, and they will also donate half of their proceeds.

  1. Nepenthe Homebrews had its second flooding event in 2 years? I hope they use the money they raise to move to a new location on higher ground!
