On Monday, January 15, 2018, Friends School of Baltimore will send hundreds of parents, students, faculty, and alumni into the community in support of MLK Day of Service. On this day we join one another to reflect on the principles of nonviolent social change and racial equality by serving our greater community. Activities are both on-campus and at sites such as Believe in Tomorrow Children’s House, Baltimore Hunger Project, Art with a Heart, Helping Up Mission, McKim Center, Our Daily Bread, The Baltimore Station, Broadway East Neighborhood and The Book Thing. Our guest speaker at the Welcome Breakfast will be Jamal Jones
Director of Baltimore Algebra Project
We will be collecting books for The Book Thing at the Welcome Breakfast on MLK Day. They accept books and magazines regardless of age or subject matter and will also take records, CDs, DVDs, phones, photographs and tablets. Please bring in anything that you would like to donate.

“We are pleased to place emphasis on working together in Baltimore communities in support of the holiday’s national mission to empower individuals, strengthen communities, bridge barriers, create solutions to social problems, and move us closer to Dr. King's vision of a ‘Beloved Community,' " say this year’s parent coordinators Laurie Haas and Jennifer Smith. "We have volunteer spots available in a variety of activities and are confident that they will all fill up as they have in past years."
