Springing Back into Volunteering

Proud. Responsible. Community.
June 29, 2021

These three words encompass the experience of volunteering at United Way of Central Maryland’s Spring Back into Volunteering event. The first in-person Day of Action in 18 months brought together 115 volunteers across Baltimore City and each of the five counties United Way serves.    

“I love, love, love giving back to the community,” a Norwood Elementary volunteer said. “It’s really important for us to give back because there are so many people that are underprivileged, and because of COVID, we have a lot of people that lost jobs, and we are here to help facilitate those gaps.”     

Whether it was cleaning up a butterfly garden, mulching a playground, or beautifying a neighborhood farm, these volunteers saw the difference they were making in their community while engaging with their neighbors. Throughout the day, they connected with their community in ways that have not been possible since COVID-19 struck.

“Giving back doesn’t just mean spending money,” Beth Littrell, United Way’s Director of Community Engagement and Volunteerism said. “Giving back also has to do with putting boots on the ground, getting out there, and helping with activities and projects that benefit our communities and those in need.”
