COA Holiday Giving
The Mission Committee will work with SPAN (Severna Park Assistance Network) to provide food and gifts for 2 families in the Broadneck area. This outreach program has been one of the more popular activities in which we participate.
Please help in one of three ways: (1) by providing food items (2) by providing UNWRAPPED gifts for the children; (3) by contributing money to be used to purchase food and gifts.
Please be sure to label the item you are providing. The easiest way is to tape the tag you took with you to the item.
