2022 NASPA Annual Conference

Community Service

Volunteer to Help Sort Children’s Books for Baltimore City Youth

Every year at the Annual Meeting, NASPA organizes efforts to give back to the communities that so graciously welcome us into their cities. This year's community service project is focused on education. 

There are two ways to engage this year - both in person and those joining us virtually! 


Date: Sunday, March 20, 2022 

Time: 8:30am - 11:30am

Volunteers will work in small groups to sort and organize hundreds of children’s books that the Maryland Book Bank will distribute to Maryland students. In addition to the volunteer project, volunteers will get a tour of The Warehouse Collaborative, a 40k square foot Baltimore warehouse  where the Maryland Book Bank, Break A Difference, and four other nonprofits are headquartered. Volunteers will be transported to the volunteer site via bus, provided by NASPA. 


There are a limited number of spots to participate! Register here to help us give back in Baltimore! The deadline to register is March 11th.
