Community Engagement for Retirees
The Office of Work, Life and Engagement runs several programs during the year that you can contribute to. For example:
- American Red Cross Blood Drives on the Homewood Campus. (You can be a donor or volunteer during the drive.)
- Adopt-a-Student Uniform Drive
- Adopt-a-Family/Adopt-a-Senior provides families and individuals in the need with gifts, clothing, and grocery gift certificates that they may not otherwise receive or be able to afford during the December holidays.
- Vernon Rice Memorial Holiday Turkey program provides turkeys and fresh vegetables to families in need during the November and December holidays.
In addition to the rewarding and interesting community service opportunities listed above, JHU retiree volunteers are also needed in our office to assist with mailings, light clerical work, and staff events such as the American Red Cross Blood Drives. To offer your services, please email or call 410-516-2000.
