Diana Goldsmith, program associate at JVC, hopes that this event will be an opportunity to spread volunteerism in the city.

“Together, JVC and Repair the World: Baltimore, partnered up to provide volunteer opportunities for young professionals in the Baltimore community and give them a chance to learn about social justice issues,” she said.

Repair the World works closely with local nonprofits to create service and educational projects to empower the Baltimore community and volunteers who work with them.

Partnering with IMPACT Baltimore, Charm City Tribe, Moishe House Baltimore and Jewish Tigers Alumni Alliance, 30 volunteers met on Sunday to clean, sharpen and organize tools and do gardening work from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The event’s operations were not impacted by Hurricane Florence.
