Volunteering in Towson and Maryland


Volunteers Wanted

History Project at Towson Library

Volunteers wanted! The Towson Library has many historic phamphlets, articles and newpapers/magazines that are currently accessible only through a card catalog and visiting the library. Librarians would like to update access to the materials by putting out an electronic "card catalog." The project would entail reading these articles, deciding the best words to use to help people find this information on the web and then entering the data in a museum software program called PastPerfect. Training will be provided. Volunteers must be computer literate and interested in Maryland history.

Contact Robin Halbert at 410.887.6166, ext. 111

Volunteering in Southland Hills

Southland Hills

Presbyterian Home of Maryland

Adopt a Grandparent

Southland Hills neighbors are invited to ‘adopt’ a resident of the Presbyterian Home located right in the middle of our neighborhood. Many residents of the home do not have family in the area or do not receive visitors very often. Many neighbors in our community do not have grandparents in the area. This is a perfect way to brighten a senior’s day and to bridge the generation gap, while teaching children (and reminding adults!) the importance of compassion.

This program will involve simply visiting your family’s ‘grandparent’ once per month. You could bring a handmade card, cookies, a book to read with them, some photos to share, and just talk and/or take a walk with them for a short time. Please write to the following address stating your family member's names, age(s) of child(ren), telephone number, best day/time to visit, and an email address. You will be contacted soon to make further arrangements.
