Saturday Social - Clean Up Kingman island

  • Living Classrooms 3047 Benning Road Northeast Washington, DC, 20002 United States (map)

Join the Harvard Club of Washington DC, Harvard Alumni for Education Shared Interest Group (HAEd) and Living Classrooms, a Baltimore based non-profit that works with returned citizens, in our second joint community service project.

Our project is a clean up effort at Kingman Island, an island in Northeast DC that is managed by Living Classrooms.  The second event in our series will take place on Saturday, April 7th, from 10am to 12pm at Kingman Island. Please wear boots and disposable gloves will be provided.

On March 3rd, we succesfully launched #saturdaysocials, an ongoing monthly volunteer opportunity for Harvard Alumni to serve alongside citizens returning to society. Living Classrooms is a non-profit organization committed to strengthening communities and inspiring people to achieve their potential through hands-on education and job training. One such initiative provides ongoing support to aid formerly incarcerated individuals in adjusting and returning to their community. The "re-entry" initiative focuses on providing marketable work skills and experiential learning for these individuals who are struggling to succeed against terrible odds. We were able to successfully make and deliver 526 sandwiches to local Baltimore residents at our first joint event. Now, we are moving outdoors and focusing on environmental clean up.
