Johns Hopkins University volunteers fanned out across Baltimore on Saturday, October 19 to plant, paint, build, and clean up on the fifth annual President’s Day of Service. Nearly 1,000 people, including representatives from 65 student organizations, took part, serving 45 partner organizations, President Ronald J. Daniels said. When the event was first held in 2009, about 200 volunteers pitched in to help 15 organizations, Daniels noted. “Of course, there is one constant—the enthusiasm of our students, faculty, and staff for coming out as one university and joining forces with our partners across the city to bolster our communities,” he said.
