For their 2018 Maxim Service Day, the Marketing and Communications Department volunteered with Boys Hope Girls Hope of Baltimore. We found this opportunity through our department Director, Jaclyn Pavelec-Ceesay, who serves on their board. The day began with the executive director, Karen Bond, educating us on the history of the organization, its mission and current services, and giving us a tour of the girls’ home, which was built by “Extreme Makeover Home Edition.” The boys and girls have separate houses, and they live, study and do chores there during the week.
Our team used our professional skills to complete a variety of projects: marketing collateral, proposal editing, social media planning, photography and video assets, email marketing, and both updating and optimizing the organization’s website. We truly enjoyed serving such a remarkable organization right here in our community. We plan to return to BHGH of Baltimore in 2019 for our next service day. It was such a fulfilling experience that we are excited to work with them a second time.
