The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) is partnering with FLO, a Baltimore nonprofit and UMB community partner, to provide aid to the homeless during its annual Homeless Festival.
FLO is seeking volunteers for the Homeless Festival, which will be held Saturday, Aug. 11, from noon to 5 p.m. at Excel Academy at Francis M. Wood High School in West Baltimore. Services for the homeless will be offered, including health screenings, legal counseling, and housing/ employment information. In addition, FLO will be giving away backpacks and school supplies to local elementary school children.
UMB will have a table promoting its Community Engagement Center and is seeking additional volunteers to help support this event.
