INO.com President and MarketClub Co-creator, Adam Hewison, has loved the South County Assistance Network (SCAN) for years. He and his wife have made this their go-to charity, as it directly benefits members in their tight-knit community. SCAN, based in Lothian, Maryland, is an organization of individuals from the faith and business community who work together to provide assistance to those in need. Among their services, SCAN provides a food bank for county residents and assists with the payment of heating bills for community members in need during the harsh winter months.
Last year, Adam and INO.com Co-owner, David Maher, purchased food for SCAN. A few members of the INO family then delivered it to the food bank headquarters. Each giant jar of peanut butter was hand-delivered with love in hopes that it would provide nourishment to our neighbors.
Of course, Adam wanted to select this organization again this year! Adam and David ventured out on their annual shopping excursion. Together, they loaded up a truck with non-perishable items.
Yes, it is no longer February and I am a little late to this post. February was an icy, snowy mess for Maryland. Every time we scheduled a time to deliver the goods and monetary donation to the food pantry, it snowed. We had to keep pushing back the delivery date week after week. Thankfully, on March 12th, some members of our staff were able to make the delivery.
After the long delay we got the ultimate reward. The smiling SCAN organizer faces and the thought of the grateful families that would take possession of the food were well worth the wait.
Share a little love this month and every month with those that mean the most to you, as well as those that may not know you, but need you.
