Every fall since 1883, the Baltimore Polytechnic Institute has opened its doors to students who want to focus on science and engineering. Along with showing up to learn, that community also helps keep the school open.
On Saturday, August 15, more than 100 volunteers are set to show up at the school a short while before classes start to get the school ready for the year. At the Poly Day of Service, the students and alumni will help with cleaning, landscaping, painting and other tasks that will help spruce up the school before the new year. Anyone who wants to help can show up at the school, located at 1400 W. Coldspring Ave., at 9 a.m. on Saturday morning. The event lasts all day.
“I am thrilled that so many in the Poly community care so much about our school that they are willing to spend the day with us making it shine,” Jacqueline Williams, Poly’s first female African-American Director and a member of the Class of 1981, said in a press release.
