Jewish Community Services to hold workshop; toy drive
The Jewish Community Services Career Center, in partnership with the Jewish Community Center and Baltimore Jewish Abilities Alliance, is hosting a workshop for parents, Helping Your Young Adult With Special Needs Transition from School to Work. The program will take place at Jewish Community Services in Owings Mills, 3506 Gwynnbrook Ave., from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Nov. 22.
