20160330_211703

SPAN’s volunteer, Fran Seaman was recognized by the Association for Severna Park Improvement, Renewal and Enhancement (ASPIRE) at the organization’s annual Community Leadership Awards banquet.

In July of 2009, Fran walked through the doors of SPAN with the desire to make a positive difference in our community. Fran immediately became an intricate part of SPAN’s total operation. She is a client interviewer and assists clients on a one to one basis to determine how we can help, is on SPAN’s Board of Directors representing our partner church, Severna Park United Methodist, and also a member of SPAN’S review committee.

Whether working directly or indirectly with our clients, Fran faces unique and sometimes overwhelming challenges in responding to the needs of our neighbors. Her devotion in helping families through critical situations never falters, and her compassion has no boundaries. From assisting our neighbors, to clearing the entry way after a storm, creating and maintaining a data base, to assisting with the Holiday and Easter Caring programs, or encouraging others to do whatever they can, her passion to help our community remains strong.

When asked why you volunteer at SPAN, Fran said “because I really am touched by the significant challenges many people experience in our community just to stay warm or to feed their family. It makes me a passionate supporter of SPAN; it makes me want to be there and volunteer in different ways.”

Because of her endless energy, dedication, and love for her neighbors, Francie Seaman is making a difference every day – and together – we are making a difference today that will last for many tomorrows.
