Worker with mask sets up lunches for Food for Our Front Lines initiative.


Your generous gift to the Food for Our Front Lines initiative helped support our dedicated University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) co-workers and colleagues working on campus during the height of the pandemic by providing nutritious lunches and helped small businesses in West Baltimore stay afloat during the quarantine.

"I would like to personally thank the individuals who so kindly donated to the Food for Our Front Lines initiative. Whenever I announced to my crew that we were getting lunch on a particular day, they were truly delighted, which was expressed with smiles of joy and comments of gratitude. I thank you on behalf of the UMB staff that reaped the benefits of your kindness. May God bless you all."  CHAD GOINGS, HVAC TRADES MANAGER, UMB
