Gifts of Food Make a Difference

West Severna Park Community collects 1,000 cans!

Your gift of non-perishable food to SPAN does make a difference in many of our neighbors’ lives. Without your help, many local families might otherwise go hungry. If you or your club, business or organization or even your neighborhood, such as the West Severna Park Community, would like to sponsor an event to benefit SPAN, contact us at 410 647-0889, email – spanhelps@yahoo.com

Super Bowl Sunday food drive by our neighbors in West Severna Park: Nancy Jackson reported that 80 families signed up to help.

“We divided into 2 teams (Giants and Patriots)…..It was unbelievable what folks had ready for us. Once teams got the donations they put a balloon in each yard. It was so cool! Balloons everywhere!” The teams put their food on their team tarps. and winners were awarded a bracelet that said SPAN BOWL 2012. “Next year, Nancy said, “we’re thinking of doing some friendly challenging of neighboring communities.”
