The Health Department has several volunteer opportunities available for those who wish to give their time in the service of others.
The Tobacco Enforcement Unit looks for high school students to volunteer to assist with undercover tobacco enforcement inspections. Students ultimately deter retail tobacco vendors from selling to minors. Inspections provide an opportunity for students to earn community service hours and support their community in a unique and exciting way. Call 410-313-6265 for more information.
