November & December
Every day we see the unique challenges facing our neighbors in need. The holidays are no exception. Unfortunately, there are families in our area that have faced an emergency situation this year, leaving them struggling to pay their rent, pay their utility bill, fill a prescription, or buy food. These financial stresses make it difficult or even impossible to provide a holiday dinner or Christmas gifts for their children.
The SPAN Holiday Caring Program helps our neighbors in need by providing assistance with holiday food baskets and gifts for children. In order to provide this assistance, we depend on the generosity of people like you! Please consider becoming a sponsor - you will be matched with a SPAN client family, purchase the food and/or gifts for the family, and deliver the donation to SPAN for distribution. Sponsors also have the option of sending SPAN a tax-deductible donation or gift cards.
To become a sponsor, please complete the attached sponsor form and return it to SPAN. For more information please email us at email@example.com or call us at 410-647-0889. Thank you for your help. Together we are making a difference every day!

Hats off to Theresa Kurtz - Realtor at Re/Max One for organizing an amazing back-to-school event to benefit those in need in our community! Fabu' Salon & Spa will be giving free haircuts and backpacks full of school supplies to our clients on August 20. SPAN will serve as a drop-off point for school supplies. You can bring them by during our office hours (M-Th 10-2) or 24/7 in our bin behind our building. Other drop-off points are Fabu', The Cottage, and Garry's Grill.
Also, you can bring five school supply items to The Cottage on Monday, July 30, to receive 20% off one item (some exclusions apply). The Cottage will also be donating 10% of their sales on July 30 to the school supply drive. For those who drop off at Fabu' Salon, you will receive a coupon for 25% off your next retail purchase.
Thanks also to Garry's Grill & Catering for being a cash sponsor of this event!
Don't you just love it when local businesses get together for the betterment of our community!
Be sure to mention SPAN so we get credit for your purchase!
