On February 4, 2018, we experienced the magic that is community. As 38 local neighborhoods collaborated to fill SPAN's and Asbury Church Assistance Network's pantries, we saw the goodness and generosity that makes our little corner of Maryland such a wonderful place to live! Thank you Julie Shay and Good Neighbors Group for organizing the S(o)uper Bowl Neighborhood Food Drive that will feed our neighbors in need for many weeks to come! And thank you to all the neighborhood captains who showed up in the pouring rain for this cause.
Sharon Tegler visited SPAN during the Holiday Caring distribution event in December, and wrote a wonderful article. Read it here:
Many of you saw us marching down Benfield Rd. in the Severna Park Fourth of July Parade, pushing shopping carts and collecting food and cash. We were overwhelmed by the generosity we encountered! Thank you to Sarah Kent and Woods Church's Praise Band for helping us out with announcements and volunteers.
We want to thank all of our other donors and volunteers who braved the heat to make the day a huge win, especially Bookkeeper Linda Moore, her daughter, and three grandchildren, who stole the hearts of the crowd, and SPAN board member Karen Myers and her husband Craig! We collected hundreds of pounds of food and almost $700 in cash donations. Thank you to Kathy Taylor for making our signs, and to the Benfield Safeway for loaning us the shopping carts and donating the balloons.
