Sophomores Make Positive Impact on Community

Before the 2022-23 school year got underway, the Class of 2025 learned an important lesson in doing the greatest good for our community. At the sophomore orientation on Monday, August 29 the class of 160 students spent time assembling buckets, kits, backpacks, and bags of much-needed supplies for four local organizations.

Working together, they saw the positive impact they can have when they work together. In less than an hour, they packed:

* 55 cleaning buckets, 20 kitchen kits and 24 snack packs for the children and families living at the Ronald McDonald House, 

* 48 health kits for Homebound senior citizens in Maryland for Meals on Wheels and wrote 48 personalized cards,

* 22 backpacks filled with school supplies for children at Owings Mills Elementary School, and

* 48 learning bags with school supplies for PK-first grade students at The Loyola Early Learning Center.

At the end of the day, Director of Greatest Good McDonogh Bridget Collins '90 addressed the Class of 2025 saying, “Thank you for starting the school year by thinking of others and using your time and talents to do the greatest good in our local community. Through your generosity and kindness, we were able to give to four different organizations. We are looking forward to doing even more good together this year!”
