The medical school, with help from other University of Maryland professional schools, organizes a Thanksgiving feast for the homeless community every year. The event is held at Booker T. Washington Middle School from 11am-3pm. Along with providing turkey, stuffing, pies, and drinks, we also hold clothing, toiletry, and food (non-perishable and fresh) drives in the weeks before Thanksgiving. Students can participate on one of the various committees (e.g. Food, Publicity, Shelters, Donations, Logistics & Volunteers, Legal, etc.), cook a turkey, and/or volunteer on Thanksgiving Day.
