On a sunny Saturday, more than 250 Johns Hopkins alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty, and staff partnered with Baltimore nonprofits and community organizations for the second annual Johns Hopkins in Action citywide day of service. The volunteers prepared lunches for the homeless, removed trash and debris from streams, tended community gardens, and planted trees. Many also started the day with a 5K run through downtown Baltimore, with proceeds supporting the Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins.
The host organizations were: Bread for the City; Blue Water Baltimore, Civic Works—Baltimore's urban service corps program; The 6th Branch/Operation Oliver; Health Care for the Homeless; Maryland Department of Juvenile Services, William Donald Schaefer House; Maryland Food Bank; Moveable Feast; Parks and People; People's Homesteading Group; and Wyman Park Dell.
