Why I give…
With the passing of each season, marked as it is by the interesting programs of the Maryland Humanities Council, I have to reflect on how proud I am to be a volunteer. The MHC is a place where I can use my talents and my passion for literature and learning for the good of the greater community. There are lots of projects to work on with smart, can-do people. The staff is always thankful for even the smallest contribution. Though I am not a native Marylander, I gained an appreciation of the diversity across the state. The rewards of public service are never trivial.
The truth is that I have gotten much more out of working at the MHC than I expected.
