People for Transformations is a group of researchers hoping to 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.

For more information, contact Sondra Ponzi at 410-516-0338 or log on to for links to this and other FSRP community service programs.
