I have participated in CC's Thanksgiving Fest as a turkey cooker! I love how Rob and his amazing and dedicated volunteers reach out to our community in Eastport/Annapolis and make sure that these families know they are loved and respected. The kids have a great time with art and craft, parents get served and the whole family eat a delicious and nutritious meal together. I am thankful to be part of this community outreach and enjoy a meal with my neighbors as we serve and love them.
I have volunteered at the Summer of Arts & Music Camp Creating Communities offers every year to our local underserved children (Elementary thru High School). Rob Levit pulls together a team of experts in arts & music to lead creative and exciting classes to help these kids express their thoughts, feelings, and aspirations in a new and fun manner. They get physical, mental, and emotional rejuvenation as they participate in this weeklong event. Families & Friends attend a "show" at the end of the week and witness the amazing projects and results of their children's time at this camp. The talent and passion demonstrated by these children and their leaders takes them by surprise. These kids walk taller, with a smile on their face, knowing how much talent they have and cherished they are by this group of local "fans". I have loved attending this closing ceremony for the past 3 years and I'm glad I have had a small part in supporting this effective organization.
Creating Communities is an inspiration! I had the pleasure to volunteer and teach with this awesome organization and always feel so uplifted by every aspect. From the wonderful and very enthusiastic students, amazing and dedicated staff of volunteers, teachers, visiting artists, board members and Rob Levit, there is now doubt Anne Arundel County is a better county because Creating Communities exists.
When you see how many people Creating Communities touches in so many ways - it's amazing. Rob is tireless in his efforts and so committed. I aspire to be like him when I grow up.
I am privileged to participate in Creating Communities annual Thanksgiving Jam as a "turkey cooker" since the program first began. The past 2 years, i stayed for the festivities and helped serve dinner. The spirit of community in that room is overwhelming. The gratitude of the dinner guests is most humbling. Maybe the guests will have another Thanksgiving meal, maybe this was the only one they will have. On that night, we are all just one big family, sharing a meal, sharing some laughter, and giving thanks for the blessings we have. So many lives are enriched by Creating Communities. Give them a few hours of your time and see for yourself....
