Day of Caring Project

Help make a difference in the life of a child in our community by participating in Johns Hopkins' Day of Caring Project at St. Jerome's Head Start, a child care center that provides academic skills training to children from low-income families. This program enables children to be better prepared when entering kindergarten, thereby improving the likelihood of their success during their academic careers. Volunteers are needed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 12, to accompany 4- and 5-year-olds on a trip to a pumpkin farm. Transportation and lunch will be provided. Each volunteer will have one to two children and should be prepared for an active day. If you are interested in participating, contact Jacklyn Coe at or 410-516-6060.
