Hopkins Happenings: How Do You Make Time For Baltimore?

Employees across Johns Hopkins Medicine are actively engaged in a number of activities that benefit local communities and neighborhoods. Do you mentor or read to school-aged students, participate in neighborhood cleanup efforts, or help the homeless? As we reflect on the one-year anniversary of Freddy Gray’s death and the resulting unrest in Baltimore, share how you have become or continue to be an active volunteer in the community.

Hi,
JHBMC is looking for JHHS sponsored or supported community activities to support our organization's strategic initiatives.
If volunteers are needed for any activities, can you please let me know??
Thanks very much!

I volunteer at BARCS (Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter) near M&T Bank Stadium. They are the largest open-admission shelter in Maryland, and they take in over 12,000 animals a year - from dogs and cats, to goats, horses, snakes, and birds!

Studies show that animal abusers often progress to domestic abuse and child abuse, so saving these animals and investigating these cases helps cuts off the cycle at the beginning.

Check out http://www.taughtbytime.com. It's a Baltimore organization that's sharing folk's 2 cents with the hope that others can learn from their advice. With the plethora of negative news, it's nice to hear positive thoughts!

Enjoy 🙂

I try to give back to the community by volunteering at our local churches' children's' programs. I'm also looking into doing some mission work for the city of Baltimore through our church. There are many different opportunities there to give back.
