There are many ways to get involved at UMD and make a difference in someone’s life.
In a single year, more than 4,000 volunteers work with us to help their neighbors in need: individuals, communities of faith, groups from local colleges and universities and many K-12 schools, civic groups and businesses, large and small.
Together, all of them share in a variety of tasks to help one another and to create a welcoming, caring, and compassionate environment that affirms the dignity of all.
We invite you to come and Share the Journey with us!
Throughout the year, there will be opportunities to serve, celebrate, raise funds, collect, learn, comfort and be comforted as our entire community shares the journey together.
Volunteer today. Or organize a service project. Both are great ways to help us provide food, clothing, shelter and supportive services to our neighbors in need. Together we can build a stronger community of support and grow as people of character, humility, and compassion.
