Join Human Resources in Reaching Out to the Community
The Office of Human Resources needs your help for a needy cause. OHR has partnered with Calvin Rodwell Elementary in Baltimore City to provide the title one school with much-needed supplies and volunteers. Since January 2009, staff members from OHR have visited the school to read to students, chaperone school events, and supply classrooms with basic materials. This spring, OHR’s efforts earned them a Volunteer Award from the school’s Parent Teacher Association. However, Employee/Employer Relations Manager Jo Ann Joseph, who helped to establish the partnership, says there is still much work to be done.
“So many of the students at Calvin Rodwell don’t have the basic school supplies they need,” Jo Ann said. “Their families are financially strapped and they can’t provide the materials necessary for student success. The school really needs our help.”
As the school year approaches, Human Resources is gathering donations for the school, and everyone on campus is encouraged to give whatever they can to help the school fulfill its educational mission. A list of needed items is below. Supplies can be dropped off at the Office of Human Resources, where they will be compiled for delivery to Calvin Rodwell. For more information, contact Employee/Employer Relations Associate Mary T. Casterline at 410-704-5772.
