The Hopkins Parents Fund supports President’s Day of Service

A total of 1,300 volunteers – Johns Hopkins undergraduate and graduate students, along with faculty, alumni, and staff – donated their time and effort at the annual President’s Day of Service. Fanning out to 43 sites across the city, these volunteers undertook tasks dealing with hunger or justice, beautification, and outreach projects like mentoring city youth in athletics and academics.
“It’s extremely helpful to the community. It also helps Hopkins students bond and get to know each other,” says Baltimore native, Bahareh Jabbari, A&S ’16, who was program chair for the event this year.

“It’s such a meaningful day. You have so much fun while actually making a difference,” says Jabbari, who also is the Robert Forster and Vernon Lidtke Scholar.

Initiated by Johns Hopkins University President Ronald J. Daniels, President’s Day of Service is one of many events supported by the Hopkins Parents Fund, dedicated to enriching the Homewood student experience.
