Not all philanthropic events are about fundraising for major research companies -- some of them are about helping people directly.
Several grassroots organizations from around Baltimore City joined forces on Oct. 8 to host a coat drive and free day party at Corinthian Restaurant and Lounge.
"We do this because there's a great need," said organizer Derrick Graham. "The homelessness in Baltimore City, the poverty in Baltimore City; it needs to be done. No one's going to do it but those who are closer to it. So it's a heart-driven movement."
