NOVA’s Halal on the Lawn

At our 4th annual Halal on the Lawn, NOVA (Neuroscience Outreach and Volunteer Association) will be collecting donations for the residents of Spring Grove Psychiatric Hospital. As you do your spring cleaning, please consider bringing clothing, shoes, books, games, and toiletries to Halal on the Lawn. All students receive free food when they bring a donation.

The residents of Spring Grove Psychiatric Hospital have limited resources and opportunities to shop for themselves. NOVA runs a BINGO game for them once a month and we use the donations collected at Halal on the Lawn as prizes for BINGO throughout the year. When we play, everyone is a winner. Any donations that Spring Grove cannot accept, we bring to House of Ruth, a local women’s shelter.

This event has been wonderfully successful in the past. We are so appreciative of the University’s generosity. We hope to make this year equally beneficial for our students and the Baltimore community. Please join us April 21 on the School of Nursing Lawn from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

This event is co-sponsored by USGA.
