Join Us for Our Fourth Annual Bees for BARCS

Jay Parker
We are pleased to announce our annual school-wide fundraiser to support the Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter (BARCS), by creating a Bees for BARCS team to represent Calvert School on October 26 at BARCStoberfest in Patterson Park. We hope you can join us in supporting this meaningful student-led initiative to help a great organization. Each year, BARCS cares for 12,000 animals in the Baltimore area by providing shelter and medical care.
This marks Calvert School’s fourth year supporting BARCS through the Bees for BARCS team. In each of the past three years, we have been the top independent fundraiser for BARCStoberfest, raising almost $20,000 in support of this great organization.

Bees for BARCS was launched in 2016 by Seventh Grade students seeking to increase outreach opportunities for the entire school. The idea was first hatched at the Middle School Leadership Summit in February 2016, and has blossomed and flourished ever since. This is a fun, family-oriented event. Bring your family, friends, and pets to Patterson Park for a great community event. All participants (runners, walkers, supporters) will receive a free Calvert Bees for BARCS t-shirt!
Please consider joining the team in one of these ways:
  1. Participate in the 5k run or 1 mile walk
  2. Donate to our team
  3. Come out and support us on Saturday, Oct. 26
