Covid-19 Update & Flooding: With the spread of Covid-19, The Blue Ribbon Project is following guidance from our local and state government and will be postponing all Volunteer events until further notice. In addition to this, The Blue Ribbon Project recently experienced a significant flood to the lower floor of our building. Repairs are being made, however, this has made some of our rooms inaccessible. Mirah's Closet and other portions of The Blue Ribbon Project are OPEN by appointment.
Hi, my name is Rene’ Lyons, and I have been a member of the Leadership Team since the summer of 2019. I am currently splitting my time mainly between Mirah’s Closet and Foster Friends. I have been a resident of Maryland for almost my entire life, and I currently live in northern Anne Arundel County with my husband of 26 years and my two awesome kids, both students at the University of Maryland, College Park. I am a graduate of Loyola University, Maryland with a degree in Accounting, and while my work experience is predominantly in that field, I most recently worked part-time for an attorney specializing in Family Law. It was there where I came into direct contact with cases of children in troubling situations and was motivated to look for volunteer opportunities that have a direct impact on kids/families who need a little extra help. Please stop and say hello if you see me!
