Happy Helpers for the Homeless

This weekend, my family and I volunteered with Happy Helpers for the Homeless, handing out food, clothing, and other goods to those in need in Baltimore. Happy Helpers has been serving the homeless and impoverished every single weekend for the past 22 years!! I had a great time supporting these people in a city that has been so troubled lately. I hope that the items and kindness given by Happy Helpers is beneficial to them and helps to meet their needs. Can’t wait to volunteer with Happy Helpers for the Homeless again!

Children’s Miracle Network – Miss America Day of Service

On Saturday, April 18, 2015 the Miss America Organization launched their inaugural day of service, Miss America Serves. Hosted by the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, this event was celebrated in every state across the nation with projects being led by MAO titleholders. My team and I were able to visit the Believe In Tomorrow Children’s House at Johns Hopkins to prepare brunch for the families staying at the house. I had the opportunity to meet a very special little guy who stole everyone’s heart! This was a great way to visit with the families, as well as raise funds for the Children’s Miracle Network. I’m also so proud that my team contributed to Maryland’s 3rd place ranking out of the entire country for the amount of money raised on the Day of Service!!
