Owings Mills Elementary Network
Owings Mills Elementary has students in grades K-5 with a current enrollment of 784 students. Of these, 64.5% live in severe poverty, 505 qualify for Free Meals, 244 depend on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and 18 are currently identified as homeless. Many others live in families who make too much to qualify for meal assistance, but not enough to make ends meet. Owings Mills Elementary is the first elementary school and the first school in the northwest of the county to join the Network.
The lead volunteers are Susan Katz, Nora Linstrom, and Vicki Almond, who will work with school staff to fulfill student needs and stock and organize the room for students, now known as the Kindness Closet. For a list of items needed for the Kindness Closet, please check out the Kindness Closet page.
