How to help your fellow Baltimoreans as the holidays near

The holidays are approaching — which means it’s time to contribute to two food drives at the University of Baltimore. Every donation helps!

Professor Barbara Babb, director of UB’s Sayra and Neil Meyerhoff Center for Families, Children and the Courts,  sends the following message about CFCC’s annual food drive:

“The University of Baltimore School of Law’s Sayra and Neil Meyerhoff Center for Families, Children and the Courts is working to provide food baskets to many of the Baltimore City students participating in CFCC’s Truancy Court Program and their families for the Thanksgiving and winter holidays. CFCC’s goal is to create a total of at least 100 food baskets. Each basket costs approximately $60. If you are interested in donating to this initiative, please contact Eliseba Osore, the Truancy Court Program social worker, at eosore@ubalt.edu for information about payment options. If you are interested in helping to assemble the baskets on Wednesday, Nov. 25 (for Thanksgiving) or Monday, Dec. 21 (for the winter holiday), please contact Ms. Osore.”

Meanwhile, 3L Sheena Williams is leading the University of Baltimore’s annual food drive to benefit the Maryland Food Bank and the Lawyers’ Campaign Against Hunger. Members of the UB community are asked to drop off canned and/or nonperishable food items in the boxes found in the University’s main buildings. In the Angelos Law Center lobby, look for the box under the large yellow poster at the foot of the staircase. For more information, visit www.ubalt.edu/youcanhelp.

Thank you for helping your community!
