“In the short time since The Mount Rose (MD) chapter was chartered in 2016, we have devoted thousands of volunteer hours to successfully develop programs that are growing and providing a significant benefit in Prince George’s County and Liberia. In addition to a $5,000 donation to the fine arts department of Maryland’s oldest HBCU, Bowie State University, funds from the inaugural fundraiser also help The Mount Rose chapter to continue providing impactful programming such as The Mount Rose National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) Junior Chapter; The Mount Rose Heart Links Program; The Mount Rose Empower Her Program; and The Mount Rose Liberia Reading Place in West Africa,” said Dana B. Stebbins, Mount Rose (MD) chapter president.
