National Volunteer Week: April 18-24, 2021
National Volunteer Week kicks off on April 18th, and The League for People with Disabilities would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our volunteers, who share their time and talents with us!

In honor of National Volunteer Week, we would like to highlight one of our dedicated volunteers, Sarah Cusack. Sarah has been a volunteer with CLUB1111, and most recently on the committee for the 4th Annual Virtual #OMGFOOD Event!
My League Story:
Sarah Cusack, Volunteer with The League
"The second Saturday of the month is one of the most important dates on my calendar. I love CLUB1111!

Last year when club was live, I met a club member who, like me, was in his thirties. He shared with me that his friends did not show up. He shared that he was feeling sad and unsure. I totally understand that feeling as I struggle with social anxiety around people I do not know. Outside of club, I don’t always feel comfortable to share those feelings. But what I love about The League is that everyone can just be themselves! 

I absolutely love volunteering at The League; specifically Club 1111. It’s a place where I see the biggest smiles and the best dressed club goers from the mocktail lounge to the rap room there is something for everyone! Thanks for letting me be part of something so great!

See you on the second Saturday!"
-Sarah Cusack

A Note from Our President & CEO
Dear Friends of The League,
I am pleased to share that The League had the opportunity to host five COVID-19 vaccination clinics from April 1st through April 5th in partnership with the Baltimore City Department of Health and the Maryland Department of Health. We were able to offer the vaccine to 485 individuals over those five days. 

Under the direction of our Vice President of Customer Relations, Rhonda Johnson, we quickly prepared our main campus for the clinic. We put safety measures in place, created a layout of the clinic and began offering the appointments to our staff, participants and their caregivers, as well as, the disability community at large.

On Friday, April 2nd, Maryland Lt. Governor Boyd Rutherford and other key government officials toured the clinic at The League. I had the pleasure of hosting he and his team so that they had an opportunity to see the great work that was being done at The League.

We are thrilled that we were able to offer the vaccine to our participants and staff in almost all of our programs as we prepare to safely reopen our facility, as is allowed by the guidelines of Baltimore City and the Department of Health. It was wonderful to see many of our participants in person for the first time in more than a year!

I would also like to extend the invitation to you to join us for the 4th Annual #OMGFOOD Virtual Event. You will not want to miss this unique, exciting event that our committee of dedicated volunteers have been planning for the past six months! All proceeds from the even benefit The League.
