    Hello Mr Steiner. First let me say that I absolutely love your, very informative show! I am not from Baltimore originally. I have lived here for about ten yrs, and due to my work schedule I had little to no time for community investment. However now I definitely feel the call to make the time! I am writing you in hopes that you could possibly lead me in the right direction. I am a ordained Elder affiliated with Dominion Ministries in Frederick Md. I am looking join local organizations as a volunteer to learn from the inside, the grassroots nature of the multifaceted attempt to impact the black community in a positive way. If you could give me insight on some of the organizations that you feel are prolific in the cause, and could use additional manpower, I would greatly appreciate it.
