Retired Senior Volunteer Program
A Maryland Day to Serve Project
The Retired Senior Volunteer Program is gearing up for our Maryland Day to Serve Project - Hygiene for Humanity. We have joined Marylanders from across the state, along with our neighbors from Virginia, West Virginia and Washington, DC, to engage in service from September 11 through September 28, 2014. During this time, we will be collecting travel-size toiletries to pack 1,000 hygiene kits for homeless individuals throughout Baltimore County! Please see the flyer (PDF) for details.
Help us reach our goal by making a donation of toothpaste, toothbrushes, lotion, soap, deodorant and shampoo. Each senior center will serve as a donation drop-off location.
Lastly, the Hygiene for Humanity Packing Party will commence Thursday, October 23, 2014 at Senior Expo. To make a donation or pre-register for the packing event, please phone the RSVP office at 410-887-3101 or email email@example.com.
