As a Maryland transplant who has lived in Anne Arundel County for the last 15 years, Lisa was looking for ways she could serve her community in more meaningful and directed ways. Having learned about Caring Cupboard from her friend and fellow board member, its mission hit home for her having grown up just outside of Detroit, Michigan, in a community plagued with food insecurity. Lisa began donating and volunteering her and her daughter's time in support of The Cupboard, and it was only a matter of time until Lisa found a way to become more integrated into the group. It is her honor to be a board member for an organization with such a worthy mission that directly supports and impacts Anne Arundel County families, and she looks forward to helping Caring Cupboard reach and exceed its community outreach and support goals.
Lisa is also a board member for Impact 100 Greater Chesapeake, an organization of women committed to improving their community by providing substantial grants to non-profit organizations in Anne Arundel County.

While most people dip their toes into volunteering in their community, Valerie jumped in with both feet. First, winning an award from Anne Arundel County Schools for having donated 500 hours of her time to her daughter’s school. She then turned to the needs of her community. Her ideas for making her home a better place to live, led to community members recruiting her to be President of her community association, where she instituted several policies to clean up her home and worked with governmental agencies to enforce regulations and codes, all of which worked for the betterment of her neighbors. Valerie was not done, as a daycare provider, she recognized the struggles of young mothers in obtaining the necessary items for their babies. The Green Haven Baby Pantry was born. So popular was this program, it spread to the entirety of Pasadena, then the state, as she helped baby pantries across Maryland. Valerie has a wonderful ability to make connections between organizations and to convey needs that inspire others to help.
