Giant Food Community Bag Program
We are excited to share that The Maryland School for the Blind has been selected to be a part of the Giant Food Community Bag Program, which is designed to make it easy for customers to contribute to their local community while supporting the environment.
For the month of SEPTEMBER, each time a reusable $2.50 Community Bag is purchased at the Giant Food located at 7920-30 Belair Road in Fullerton, MD, $1 will be donated to MSB, unless otherwise directed by the customer through the Giving Tag. This is a great way to raise awareness, support the environment and fundraise for our school.
How can you help?
Consider shopping at the Rosedale Giant during the month of July and purchasing a Community Bag. You may also shop at your local Giant, purchase a bag and follow the instructions on the Giving Tag to designate The Maryland School for the Blind as the beneficiary.
Spread the news to your friends and family. Send emails and post on your social media platforms or share MSB’s posts regarding the program. The more people who learn about the program and purchase the Community Bag during the month of SEPTEMBER, the more money we will raise.
We are also being considered for other Giant locations in the area for future months (if you shop at a Giant Food Store, mention MSB to the Store Manager for future consideration as the store leadership chooses the charitable organizations for each month).

Try Blind Lacrosse Clinics
In the Spring of 2019, the Maryland School for the Blind partnered with Parkville Adaptive Lacrosse, Towson HS, and Goucher College Women’s team to introduce the sport of Lacrosse to our blind and visually impaired students. Several clinics and events have been held in the spring and summer and have been a huge success! Check out this article about the clinics in US Lacrosse Magazine- https://www.uslacrosse.org/blog/developing-lacrosse-for-blind-players
Our community partners are committed to help create and build the sport for athletes with visual impairments. Our goal is to create a set of rules and adaptations that will allow players who are blind or visually impaired to competitively play Maryland’s most popular sport of lacrosse!
