Community Cook-Out & Resource Fair

Friday, January 21st, 2022 from 10:00am to 1:30pm (ET)
This has ended. If you attended, let the organizer know by recording your Impact!


This is the ONLY volunteer event being hosted by the Franciscan Center until regular volunteer events resume on Monday, February 7th. 
Note: This event is occurring OUTSIDE and OFF-SITE

The Franciscan Center helps all of the people who come through its doors, but what about the people who can't? Not everyone can physically come to the Franciscan Center or other locations to get the help they need. This event is to help those people. Our Community Cook-Out and Resource Fair is to help individuals who are living in homeless encampments to get a hot meal, a Covid-19 vaccine, and other resources to help them live their BEST life.

Volunteers for this event will:
  • Help set up before the event
  • Register individuals who will be utilizing the resources at the event
  • Distributing items (ex. sweaters, jogging pants, thermals, warmers, first-aid kits, and more!)
  • Help clean up after the event
⛽ This volunteer opportunity occurs OFF-SITE at 101 W. Patapsco Avenue, Baltimore, MD, 21225. It is the Southeast corner of Potee and Patapsco Avenues. The Resource Fair will be held in the back parking lot of the BP Gas Station. You must be able to provide your own transportation
