The South County Huddle has begun an initiative to support South County Assistance Network (SCAN) at St. James Church in Lothian and will contribute to the food pantry monthly, organize clothes drives and regularly send members to volunteer. This effort is being led by SoCo Huddle member Christine Harrison. Email her via South County Huddle for more information.
SCAN was established in May of 1997 for the purpose of providing supplemental, non-perishable food to those in need in the area. Currently the SCAN food pantry is distributing over 1,750 packages of food to 350 families annually. The pantry is located in the lower level of the Education Building at St. James Episcopal Church in Lothian, Maryland. Food is distributed on Thursdays and Saturdays from 9:00AM to 12:00PM, excluding holidays. Bags of mostly non-perishable food are handed out based on household size. Eligible families and individuals may receive food once every 30 days.
The South County Huddle meets every second Monday of the month at 5:30pm at St. James Church in Lothian, in the Education Building Room #5 downstairs.
