On September 30th HMR, together with partners KaBOOM!, 100 Black Men of Maryland, Play More B’More and DAP Products Inc., facilitated the build of a brand new playground for the Baltimore family property, Orchard Mews after 6-months of planning. HMR, the partners, and the community of volunteers worked collaboratively to clear away the existing structure then place the new one in its place. Although the prep day included an immense amount of rain, everyone was in good spirits and elated to be a part of the process. We would like to give a special thanks to the sponsors of the build, Panera Bread and Papa John’s, who provided the food for the hard working volunteers and HMR team. The new playground includes a slide, rock climbing wall, swings, jungle gym and many more activities to allow the children of Orchard to have healthy outdoor exercise. HMR is proud to have been a part of this development because it coincides with our core values of I REACH – Integrity, Respect, Enthusiasm, Accountability, Commitment and Harmony. We work hard to understand our residents needs in order to strengthen and enrich the community they live in. We would like to thank all of the amazing volunteers, sponsors and partners that made this day possible. We work hard so they can play!
