Linking It Forward: Sarahs House

2016 Sarah's House Lunch Outing - Operations

On Thursday, November 10th, 2016, Smartlink's Operations Department visited Sarah's House in Ft. Meade, MD, which provides Emergency & Transitional Housing for homeless families in Anne Arundel County. 

The group of 12 employees made tacos (20 lbs!) with all the fixings and dessert for residents and their families. Employees sat with the residents for lunch and enjoyed an afternoon spending time with the families and eating some delicious tacos (and homemade salsa)! 

In addition, with temperatures quickly getting colder, a small group of staff organized the donation room for Sarah’s House. They bagged up all of the summer clothes and unpacked bags and boxes of jackets, organizing them by size, so every child and adult who needs a winter coat would have one at the ready.

Staff was happy to give back to the community, interact with new people, and spend time making that day’s lunch and the winter ahead a little nicer for those in need.
