BALTIMORE - Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Councilman Brandon M. Scott went door to door Saturday morning to let families know about Baltimore City Super Summer sites.
They partnered with Share Our Strength, the Family League of Baltimore City, and more than 60 volunteers to canvass East Baltimore. They handed out information about the hundreds of sites that will offer learning and reading opportunities, recreational activities, and free summer meals.
These programs will offer a special benefit for low income families because it will offer students a chance to retain their reading skills and keep children who rely on free or reduced-price meals from going hungry.
The Baltimore City Super Summer campaign is a partnership between the city of Baltimore, Baltimore City Public Schools, Baltimore Housing, the Family League of Baltimore, and Share Our Strength.
Corporate support include Sodexo and Walmart.
Interested families can visit www.youthbmore.org or call 211 to connect to opportunities in their neighborhood.
