BALTIMORE — Wednesday the Baltimore Ravens hosted an organization-wide volunteer day to transform and revitalize the Webster Kendrick Boys & Girls Club.
More than 225 current and former Ravens players and staff and M&T Bank representatives participated in the event.
Volunteers transformed club's multi-purpose room, entryway teen lounge, and staff lounge. They also put new furniture, décor, and technology in the steam lab.
"The players love to do this kind of thing, and they're very busy. We're right in the middle of OTAs right now and minicamp is next week, so it’s a busy day and busy time for the players, but they're very excited to be here," said Ravens president Dick Cass. “We brought all the rookies down; a lot of veteran players are showing up during the course of the day."
Volunteers also spruced up Calloway Elementary School, held reading sessions with students, and delivered bags of new books to each student.
The renovation project was funded by the Ravens Foundation, Inc., in conjunction with M&T bank. It concludes with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
