Donate New Hats and Gloves
People for Transformations is a group of researchers hoping
address the needs and concerns of Baltimore City
communities. To kick off this effort, the group is
sponsoring a holiday drive to supply the residents of a
block in East Baltimore with hats and gloves.
Drop off new hats and gloves in the Greenhouse lobby,
Homewood campus, until Dec. 21.

Junior Achievement Biztown Event
The Office of Faculty, Staff and Retiree Programs has
partnered with Junior Achievement to help Furman Templeton
Elementary School students in West
Baltimore. Johns Hopkins volunteers are needed for JA
BizTown, an event designed to help fifth-
grade students become "grown-ups" for a day by learning to
hold a job, manage finances and develop an
understanding of how to be a functioning adult in the
community. The program will be held from 8:45
a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 10.
Participants who did not attend the Dec. 12 session
must attend the one scheduled from 6 to 8
p.m., on Wednesday, Jan. 9, at the Junior Achievement
office in Owings Mills.
