President’s Day of Service: September 21, 2019

There are many different ways to get involved on President’s Day of Service. JHU students, staff, faculty, and alumni can volunteer or become a team leader. You’ll have the opportunity to meet new friends and work with great, local non-profit organizations that make a tremendous difference in our community. Or, maybe you are one of many organizations who just need a few extra hands to help complete a project that you haven’t had the chance to finish up! Either way, we hope you will consider joining the Hopkins and Baltimore Communities on Saturday, September 21, 2019!
