Maryland Legal Aid is hosting a community birthday party on Sept. 10 to celebrate 100 years of providing free civil legal services to low-income individuals, families, and communities in Maryland.
The party will offer something for everyone, including live music, children’s activities, craft and food vendors, health testing, and information about community resources.
The festivities will be held, rain or shine, on Saturday, Sept. 10, 2011 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the War Memorial Plaza, Gay and Lexington streets, in downtown Baltimore in front of City Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
Maryland’s largest non-profit law firm, with 13 offices across the state, Legal Aid was founded in 1911 and has become one of the nation’s premier legal services organizations. In 2010, Legal Aid served more than 61,000 clients statewide in a wide range of areas including family, public benefits, health care, housing, consumer, education, elder, and employment law.
