Volunteer Opportunity

Volunteers are needed for a playground build in West Baltimore. 200 volunteers are needed to bring play to the “Magnificent” McCulloh Homes public housing development. Join neighbors as we endeavor to build a new playground for kids in the community to enjoy.

  • Volunteers should be age 18+ and will assemble playground pieces, mix concrete, move mulch, etc.
  • Wear comfortable clothes you don’t mind getting dirty and closed toe shoes; leave valuables at home.
  • Youth activities provided.
  • Gloves, goggles, breakfast, and lunch will be provided.

Play is central to a child’s ability to grow into a productive adult. Together, we can ensure kids get the balance of play they need to thrive! Please join us and show the kids that play matters to you.

To sign up for HABC’s Build Day, please visit the volunteer registration website. For more information, please email Anita Chavis or call 410-396-4529.

If you’re unable to attend in person, we hope that you will show your support for the cause of playin McCulloh Homes by joining the conversation online on August 26th using the hashtag

The event is hosted by the Housing Authority of Baltimore City in coordination with the School of Social Work’s Promise Heights Program.

KABOOM Playground

SSW/KaBOOM! Playground Build at Gilmor Elementary

Let’s build a playground for Gilmor Elementary students and the children who reside in Sandtown-Winchester!

KaBOOM! is a nonprofit organization dedicated to giving all kids the childhood they deserve, filled with balance and active play so they can thrive.

Although Gilmor has a small playground, it is in poor shape and not large enough for the school population and community residents. We Need YOUR Help!

Join us as we team up to build the Gilmor playground!

We are seeking 200 volunteers. No skills, training, or special tools required. You just have to be 18 or older, enthusiastic, energetic, a team player, willing to work, and want to have fun!

Saturday, Oct. 24, 2015, 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.
1311 N Gilmor St., Baltimore, MD 21217

Email Promise Heights for more information or to sign up.
