Ongoing Projects

Bountiful Backpacks Program Support

We recruit volunteers and secure funds to enable the program to meet an increased need for weekend food bags at Tracey's Elementary School.  

In addition, we organize to provide bags of food 

on weekends when the regular program does not operate due to school schedules. 

Food Pantry Support

S.T.A.I.R. Reading Program Support

We help to connect interested volunteers with  Start The Adventure In Reading (STAIR)

programs at Lothian Elementary School and

Tracey's Elementary School. 

These programs are operated by STAIR-Annapolis.

Reading Program Support

STAIR-Annapolis is a nonprofit organization that pairs second graders reading below grade level with dedicated volunteer tutors for weekly one-on-one literacy support and relationship-building.

All are welcome, no experience necessary! 

Public Transportation Advocacy

Transportation is challenging for many residents of South County. Limited or no transportation impacts residents' ability to find and keep employment, shop for essentials, participate in after-school activities, keep medical or dental appointments, and access services. 

Spreading the word about the 

South County Call N' Ride service is a priority for us.

We share information about this transportation option with residents, businesses, and service providers in South County.  

 

Utilizing this free service, residents can connect to  opportunities within South County and can also link to other public transportation routes to northern parts of Anne Arundel County.  

Transportation

Additional details can be found 

                      in the

Supplemental Food Resources Support

We work with churches and community organizations such as the SCAN Food Pantry and Produce Partners to support access to supplemental food. 

To make the information accessible, we publish a calendar of food distribution events and a list of food resources each month. These are posted on our website, on our Facebook page and distributed to a wide network of partner organizations and individuals.

Community Outreach

At community events and through our weekly email, we provide South County residents with information about our projects and about available resources and services, including the Call N' Ride Service and supplemental food sources.

Community Event

 We interact with South County neighbors to gain their perspectives on

resources and services needed in their communities. Building on these

interactions,  we develop projects or join with other organizations to bring attention to needs that have been identified.
