BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Baltimore Ravens and the Stephen and Renee Bisciotti Foundation announced Tuesday they will donate $5 million to a number of programs supported by Catholic Charities aimed at COVID-19 recovery and social justice causes.

The money will benefit a number of programs and services in Baltimore and nine counties in Maryland, the groups said, including education, housing, food and workforce development.

Our hope is that we can help make a positive impact that will be felt by many.”
