ACAN To Provide Thanksgiving Meals


Asbury Church Assistance Network (ACAN) will once again hold its Thanksgiving food drive this year to help families in need.

“We started with 20 families. This year, we are prepared to give out 300 meals,” said Shaka Pack de Flores, who was appointed ACAN’s interim executive director in September.

Shaka said the ACAN baskets will have turkeys, “all the fixin’s” and, hopefully, fresh vegetables.

Thanksgiving baskets will be distributed to families on November 17 from noon to 5:00pm at 429 Asbury Drive in Severna Park. Anyone in need can register online at or by calling 410-647-7667. In their message, people should leave their name, phone number, zip code and family size.

“While it seems like we are coming out of the pandemic, the need has not decreased,” Pack de Flores said. “Our donations are six times above pre-pandemic levels.”
