PERRY HALL, MD—The Perry Hall/White Marsh Business Association gave back to the community on Tuesday evening.
At their monthly networking meeting, PHWMBA presented a check in the amount of $2,000 to the Community Assistance Network.
The proceeds were obtained during PHWMBA’s annual Tastes and Grapes fundraiser, which was held on September 13 at DeJon Vineyards.
The Community Assistance Network, Inc.’s mission is to work in partnership with the community to develop, operate, and support programs that reduce vulnerability and promote personal growth, stability, and self-sufficiency among low-income residents.
CAN is a Baltimore County-based non-profit organization, established in 1965 as part of a national network of over 1,000 community action agencies.
In 2003, CAN’s homeless shelters partnered with Baltimore County to extend the vision of freezing weather shelters into an overnight emergency shelter program with the intent to eventually operate them year-round.
This included both the Eastside Family Resource Shelter, a 238-bed facility, located in Rosedale, and the Westside Men’s Emergency Shelter, a 154-bed facility, located in Catonsville.
