A BARCS Miracle on 34th


Last week, we suggested you make it down to the Miracle on 34th Street in Hampden.  We paid it a visit and it was quite grand.  If you have yet to make it over, the good news is that you can go for more reasons than just getting into the spirit of the season!  For the third year in a row, the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) will be providing visitors to the Miracle on 34th Street with hot cocoa, baked homemade goods, dog treats and cat toys, all in exchange for donations every Thursday through Sunday in December, and almost every night of the holiday week.
