SPAN Holiday Caring Program 2013
With the change of season, our thoughts turn with anticipation toward the upcoming holidays. However, for many of the families that come through SPAN’s door, the excitement of the holiday season is over-shadowed by the worries of being able to pay their rent, pay their utility bills, and buy food. Sadly there are families in our area who will be unable to provide holiday memories for their children. The SPAN Holiday Caring Program helps our neighbors in need by providing assistance with holiday food baskets and gifts for children. HOLIDAY CARING 2013Donor form
The Chesapeake Bayhawks Score a Goal for SPAN
The Chesapeake Bayhawks, Smartlink, and Driven have partnered in having a food drive to benefit SPAN , a local emergency assistance network that provides food and financial assistance to qualified individuals and families; helping them through critical or emergency situations in Anne Arundel County, Maryland.
All three businesses are owned by Annapolis native, Brendan Kelly, who believes in being involved in the community and giving back to the causes that are near and dear to his family’s and employees’ hearts. The companies donate tremendously to both local and national organizations all year round.
“At Smartlink we take pride in giving back to the community, not just during the holiday season, but throughout the year,” said Kelly. “SPAN provides substantial support to those in need and we are happy to play a part in helping them towards their mission.”
The three companies delivered collected items from the food drive to SPAN’s Severna Park location on Wednesday, November 27th, before the Thanksgiving holiday.
