Thank you Reese!

For her Sweet 16 Birthday, Reese Barrett, a rising junior at Severna Park High School, decided she didn’t need any presents for herself. Instead, she asked her guests to bring food to donate to SPAN’s food pantry. Her selfless act netted almost 200 pounds of food!

This isn’t the first time Reese has been generous in this manner. Her mom, Julia Barrett, explained that Reese has done the same thing with every big birthday party since she was eight years old.

 

 

Welcome Aboard, Ellen Kinsella!

Ellen Kinsella Jennifer Pumphrey

While continuing our mission of Serving People Across Neighborhoods, SPAN has recently reorganized its staff into two distinct areas of leadership. Ellen Kinsella, newly hired Director of Development, is eager to promote the awareness of SPAN within our community and expand SPAN’s financial resources to enable helping more. Jennifer Pumphrey, Director of Operations, is excited about her new opportunity to include more input from the volunteers and fine tune ways to serve our clients better. Please join us in congratulating our two directors!

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.
