Genesee Valley is located in Parkton, Maryland, just twenty-five minutes north of Baltimore City and thirty minutes south of York, Pennsylvania. As an educational non-profit organization, Genesee Valley has been serving children and adults for over thirty years. Genesee Valley believes in an experiential approach to learning and an emphasis on cooperation versus competition. They engage students and adults through activities that help them to work better in school, on their team, or in their office. They actively address communication, teamwork, healthy risk-taking, confidence building, leadership, and creative problem solving throughout the day. Though each of their programs is unique, common philosophies bind them together: learn and grow through experience, trust and self-discovery. Opportunities for growth arise from group problem-solving initiatives, the many low and high ropes course elements that make up their challenge course, summer camp activities, and the natural surroundings the farm and forests offer. They offer a variety of engaging programs including group teambuilding and adventure day programs (with an overnight camping option), spring break camp, summer day camp, off-site teambuilding (year-round), and off-site rock climbing expeditions. Their 200-acre facility is also host to lacrosse, soccer, football, and field hockey practices and tournaments, trail runs, and family or corporate picnics. With all that their programs and property have to offer, they serve nearly 20,000 individuals annually. Visit Genesee Valley's website.
Moveable Feast believes that nobody should have to fight their disease alone or on an empty stomach. That’s why they put healthy food on the table for people in Maryland with AIDS, cancer, and other life-threatening illnesses. After nearly a quarter century of delivering nutritious meals in Baltimore City and 14 Maryland counties, Moveable Feast knows that our neighbors can better fight their diseases by eating right. Moveable Feast employs Registered Dietitians and experienced Chefs to ensure that food is not only medically appropriate, but that it also tastes good. Moveable Feast sends Registered Dietitians into clients’ homes to discuss each person’s individual nutrition status, and trains their Delivery Drivers to spend time with clients, asking about their days and giving hugs. Through food, Moveable Feast saves lives. As Marvin, a man living with HIV/AIDS puts it, “Moveable Feast is not just the nutrition that they give food-wise; they give you spirit. There are times you just want to give up, but you’ve got someone you can call and reach out to – Moveable Feast. It changes your life.” Visit Moveable Feast's website.
