Interfaith Terps Give Back to the Community

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

On Sunday, May 2nd, students from several religious groups at the University of Maryland came together to give back to their community.  Through a Yachad Mitzvah Party sponsored by a Pepsi Grant, the students worked side-by-side with residents and staff from the Latin American Youth Center(LAYC)  to repair the resident buildings on 15th Street, NW.  Painting inside and out, the volunteers refreshed the group houses shared by runaway youth and teens in the DC foster system.  LAYC works to provide safe housing for these teens as well as education on independent living and life skills.   This was the second project in which Yachad helped LAYC repair their buildings successfully.  Thanks to all that participated!
