Jing Ying Institute of Kung Fu & Tai Chi Helps Build A Strong Community

Jing Ying 1-500x400

Jing Ying owners Nancy Greer (center) and Billy Greer (right) presented more than $4,000 to SPAN’s Associate Director Jennifer Pumphrey.

Jing Ying Institute of Kung Fu & Tai Chi, in Arnold, held its 12th annual holiday party and silent auction to support SPAN. Local businesses, members of the community and students donate items to the event. Many of the items are unique and handcrafted, ranging from hand-knitted jackets to original paintings. Gift certificates for a variety of services include beginner ski lessons, massages, yoga, restaurants and more. The event raised over $4,000.
“Through the generosity of our business, community and student donors — as well as the people who bid on the donations — we are thrilled to have donated more than $40,000 to charity from our silent auctions,” said Nancy Greer, auction organizer.

Little Carmine’s 1st Annual Fundraiser & Food Drive Benefiting SPAN

LITTLE CARMINESLittle Carmine’s gave a helping hand to local families in need with their 1st Annual Fundraiser and Food Drive to benefit SPAN. Donating 30% of ALL SALES to SPAN, plus if you brought in non-perishable food items, customers received a $5 coupon, Little Carmine’s raised $750.00 and received over 100 lbs. of food.

Like stepping into a café in the heart of Sicily, Little Carmine’s is filled with the sights, smells and sounds of a true Italian eatery. Little Carmine’s prides itself on true “authentic” dining and create a unique and incredibly authentic Italian experience.

Little Carmine’s has occupied its location at 523 Benfield Road only since August 2015, but that hasn’t stopped owner’s Gennaro and Stefanie from making an enormous impact in the community. Stefanie explained “we wanted to get started “right away,” serving the community in Severna Park. I wanted to start to focus on community outreach, because that’s really a passion of ours.”

How We Help

How We Help

How SPAN Helps Eligibility Requirements On April 2, 1990, the Severna Park Assistance Network (SPAN) opened its doors to local area families in crisis. SPAN was formed because of the concern on the part of the ministers in the Severna Park area with regard to the growing demand for emergency help, the need to identify the people seeking help, and a process to help those people in a dignified and expeditious manner. Before that, those needing assistance would be forced to go from church to church. SPAN enabled them to find that same resource in one place. For over 25 years SPAN has been serving our neighbors to help them through a critical or emergency situation such as utility turn-offs, court-ordered evictions, and prescription/medical needs and food. SPAN’s primary service areas include: Severna Park, Millersville, Arnold and the Broadneck Peninsula. (Residents of SPAN’s … Read more...
