February Event/9th Anniversary – Volunteering Untapped

February Event/9th Anniversary – Volunteering Untapped

Take a sold out crowd of 130. Add 225 children’s blankets to embellish for patients at Kennedy Krieger Institute and hundreds of coffee cup sleeves to decorate for the Have a Nice Day Project. Sprinkle in some birthday cake and beer. Combine all inside the Ministry of Brewing on the second Saturday of the month, and what do you have? A perfect pairing of Volunteering Untapped’s monthly day of volunteering and a celebration of the organization’s 9th anniversary.
