Donations being accepted for hurricane victims

County residents wishing to donate items to victims of Hurricane Andrew may drop them off today or tomorrow at Fiddlers Green Deli, near the Crownsville Post Office, at 1355 Generals Highway, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Three county volunteers plan to drive the truck to Florida on Friday and distribute the goods under the direction of the Red Cross.

Steve Justis, an Annapolis businessman, suggests donations of soap, tissues, disposable diapers, sleeping bags and cots, toys, towels, sheets, boxed cookies and manual can openers.

Students from half a dozen local high schools have donated canned goods to the project.

10-K walk on Saturday will help fight hunger

A 10-kilometer walk to fight hunger will take place Saturday afternoon in Severna Park, with one-fourth of the proceeds going to the Severna Park Assistance Network [SPAN], a coalition of 10 area churches that helps the homeless and needy.

The rest of the proceeds will benefit CROP, an outreach arm of the Church World Service of the National Council of Churches of Christ in the U.S.A.

CROP-walks and other community efforts to fight hunger occur regularly around the country, said Judy Harris, a SPAN representative. This is the third such walk in the Severna Park area.

The walk, from 1 to 4 p.m., will begin and end at Jones Elementary School, at Old County Road and Hoyle Lane.

Walkers must recruit sponsors to earn money and can pick up sponsor envelopes at most Severna Park churches.
