College of Southern Maryland Employees, Day of Caring Outreach

College of Southern Maryland employees volunteered through the United Way Day of Caring with Farming 4 Hunger in Benedict, MD.

The group picked tomatoes and then packed them in boxes to be trucked to churches and food pantries in Southern Maryland. “We also learned about the program that Farming 4 Hunger has with the Department of Corrections and heard from two men about their struggles in the outside world and how the farm has helped them,” said Potts, CSM assistant director of admissions and recruitment. “It was very touching and a wonderful experience.”

Day of Caring is an annual United Way special event that brings together employees from local businesses to volunteer at United Way partner agencies. Employees have the opportunity to spend a day engaging in meaningful volunteer projects to see, first-hand, how United Way dollars are working to meet the needs of the community.
