Seven employees from the Washington County Department of Social Services served as volunteer shelter managers and counselors from Aug. 26 to 28 at the Jewish Community Center in Owings Mills, Md., during Hurricane Irene.   

Four hundred and twenty-five international student work interns, primarily from Eastern Europe, who were working in Ocean City, Md., were evacuated to the center during the hurricane.    

Social services employees managed the provision of meals, sleeping arrangements and other necessities for the students during their stay.  

During a visit to the shelter, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley thanked the employees for their commitment to the residents of Maryland.
