  • Help Fight Substance Abuse And Addiction In The Community

    The Lance Ryan Eager Fund, a component of the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County, was established in 2016 to help individuals struggling with substance abuse disorders to get the treatment necessary to start them on their journey to recovery. It is named for Lance Eager, a Pasdena native who died of a drug overdose at the age of 20 in July of 2014.
    On Saturday, March 26 from 7:00 p.m. to midnight, The Lance Ryan Eager Fund is partnering with Opportunity Ministries Inc.

Please remember these businesses when you are looking for goods and services, because they are the ones supporting us and, ultimately, the community. The Internet stores, most of the bigger box stores and even the chain grocery stores are not members and may not be giving back to our community.
