“I love One Love and their mission, but I ultimately return for the people!” – Autumn, Volunteer

Volunteers of the Month

One Love honors the amazing Kristin and Lara for their energy and commitment to educating thousands of students across the Mid-Atlantic Region. As long-time supporters, both inside and outside the classroom, Kristin and Lara have championed workshops and conversations with students across the Anne Arundel County region. They lead student workshops and development opportunities, professional development series with educators in the region, and engaged the district and students through One Love Clubs. This year, Kristin and Lara will be amplifying One Love’s message across Maryland through their event, The 4th Annual Anne Arundel Runs for Love. A virtual 5k running April 24-May 1st, proceeds will benefit One Love and our partner, YWCA of Annapolis. Register here. We are truly grateful for these incredible women.
