Shepherd’s Table needs our help restocking daily essentials. We’re collecting travel-sized personal hygiene items as well as oft-requested clothing items. Help us help our neighbors!
The Shepherd’s Table Resource Center is asking for help restocking daily essentials. For hygiene items, travel sizes are preferred as Shepherd’s Table’s guests often only have a bag or two to carry their personal items in, and larger sizes tend to be heavier and take up valuable space. They will still accept some regular sizes for residents on the fourth floor and a small number of year-round shelter guests, but travel sizes are useful for the majority of people they serve.
Our friends at Shepherd’s Table are asking for items to keep their clients engaged while staying warm indoors. They’re looking for gift cards as bingo prizes as well as games for clients to play. Gift cards should be in $5-$15 denominations and they’d love them for places like McDonalds, Chipotle, 7-11, Walmart, or grocery stores. They’d also like games so clients can pass the time playing board games, (clean) card games, chess and checkers.
Drop-offs should be made at:
Shepherd’s Table 8106 Georgia Ave, Silver Spring, MD 20910 Monday – Friday: 8:30am to 11:00am and 1:00pm to 4:30pm Weekends: 8:30am to 9:30am and 1:00pm to 4:30pm
Items can be dropped off at the delivery door to the right of the main entrance. Ring the doorbell, let the staff member know you’re with Silver Spring Cares and that the gift cards and games are for Jerome.
This $125 Registration Could Be the Difference Between a Landlord Saying Yes or No
You’ve fine-tuned your business plan, hunted for a space, and finally you are ready to sign a lease–but the landlord says no, not without your SDAT. SDAT? What’s that?
Landlords have one go-to tool for getting a quick snapshot of whether or not a small business is legit: the State Department of Assessment and Taxation database. Every business operating in Maryland must register with the state and annually update their account. Setting it up costs $125 and is easy to do online. The Maryland Business Express site walks you through how.
Skip this step in making your business official, and it could cost you the chance to rent the space you want. Registered businesses are ready for business. If the business name doesn’t show in the database, the landlord is taking a risk entering into a contract with a business that’s not real, legally speaking.
If you’ve followed all the filing instructions, up will pop the name of your business, when it was registered, applicable articles of incorporation, and best of all, one line in all caps, loud and clear:
