Ways to “Give Back” In Annapolis This Season

It’s the season of giving in 2018, and I think we can all agree, now more than ever do we need to come together as a strong community and all do our part to help, give what we can and treat one another with kindness and support.    

In this spirit, November 8th, 2018, Grace Ryan partnered with Atlantic Prime Mortgage to collect 721 lbs of food for the “Harvest for the Hungry” event outside the West St. Lemongrass lot in downtown Annapolis. The food was delivered to the Anne Arundel County food bank this morning by the Atlantic Prime Mortgage team.

A special thanks to the Giant in Edgewater who donated a large amount of non-perishables to the cause as well as a huge thanks to all of our Grace Ryan advisors who volunteered their time towards this great event and to all of the MD community that came by with their donations in support of this cause.  




Looking For Ways to Give Back? Here are some fun events for a Great Cause this Season!
