In our efforts to continue making Baltimore a greener, more sustainable city, the Baltimore Ravens teamed up with M&T Bank, The Parks & People Foundation, and an organization called The 6th Branch for our annual Earth Day volunteer event. Founded in 2010, The 6th Branch (T6B) is a military veteran led organization that works with neighborhood leaders to transform vacant lots into new and vital community green spaces as well as provide support to Baltimore City Public Schools. On Thursday, April 19th, we were able to make a BIG impact in the Baltimore community as we helped T6B with their ongoing restoration project of Ambrose Kennedy Park in Baltimore City.
