Community Garden Harvest Fresh Vegetables for SPAN

Garden - Copy (2)Volunteers from around the community have come together at Our Shepherd Lutheran Church in Severna Park to support SPAN’s food bank through a community garden. From the Amazing Grace Lutheran Church in Baltimore, Maryland Sunrise Farms in Odenton to members of Our Shepherd Lutheran Church, Severna Park United Methodist Church, John Paul II Roman Catholic Home School and individuals, all came together to work the garden.

The garden, managed by Fred Wilson from Our Shepherd Lutheran Church, was built this spring and throughout the summer has provided a steady flow of vegetables such as tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, kale and spinach. Great things happen when we work together to help our neighbors. AND TOGETHER WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE EVERY DAY!

A Party For SPAN!

AlliebdayLast fall, Allie, a rising sixth grader, and her mom read the book I am Malala together, a story that touched Allie’s heart and inspired her to learn more about helping others and wanting to help families who are struggling every day.

Allie, a student at Severn School, learned about SPAN and our mission through a food drive sponsored by students in Severn’s upper school. She was so impressed with the students collecting over 10,000 items for SPAN’s food bank; it was an easy jump for Allie to ask guests attending her 10th birthday party to bring a gift for SPAN! Through the generosity of friends, Allie and her mom brought bags of food to SPAN filled with dried pasta, canned vegetables and tuna, pancake mix, and other items. The amazing thing about asking friends to come together to help is that every friend’s small contribution adds up and is much more than any of us could do on our own. A party is a fun way to make a difference!

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...
