Volunteering Untapped February Event – Kennedy Krieger Institute
February 8 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Our February event is doubly special for us. Not only is it birthday number SIX for us, but we’ll also be back where it all began: the Kennedy Krieger Institute, our first ever partner and home to our inaugural VU event back in 2014!
Kennedy Krieger is internationally recognized for their pediatric patient care, and they’ve been providing essential medical care to children and adolescents since 1937. We’ll be onsite at their Broadway Campus doing – you guessed it – SIX special activities that the kids, and all of you, are going to love! We will be busy, busy, busy creating fleece-tie blankets, putting together toiletry packages, decorating door posters, painting mugs, making Valentine’s Day cards and card boxes for the kiddos, and leading some games with their Child Life and Therapeutic Recreation team.
Please remember to bring your ID to the event as we will need to check in with Kennedy Kreiger.
🎁 Now of course, it wouldn’t be a birthday without presents, so we are asking all volunteers to bring an unwrapped gift for a child 6-years-old or younger (including infants)! All presents will be donated to the children at Kennedy Krieger.
🍰 As for the birthday paaaaartaaaay, at 1 o’ clock we’ll be heading to Admiral’s Cup for 1/2 off draft beer, wine and rail drinks, plus free birthday cake! To celebrate volunteerism in Baltimore, anyone who has EVER volunteered with us is invited. Bring along a friend that likes drinks and cake and hanging out with really cool people.
