We are excited to announce the launch of Silver Spring Cares, our new local non-profit. Founded earlier this year, Silver Spring Cares is the brainchild of Liz Brent, Associate Broker of Keller Williams Capital Properties and founder of Go Brent Team. The Long Branch apartment building fire and explosion in the summer of 2016 showed how powerful the generosity of Silver Spring residents could be. Always a people-connector, Liz sprung into action thinking of different ways to easily connect the needs of our more vulnerable neighbors with those with the ability to give. Hence, Silver Spring Cares was born.
Silver Spring Cares works to strengthen the Silver Spring community through the power of connection. Whether you are looking to donate items, donate funds, or donate time, Silver Spring Cares is your destination for information on our community’s needs and opportunities for service. By engaging the diverse needs and resources of our residents, we can create a community in which all of us may thrive.
Silver Spring resident Heather Foley will serve the non-profit’s Director. Heather was a Marketing Team Leader for Whole Foods Market for 9 years. In addition to marketing, she was responsible for community engagement and managing all corporate donations including The National Zoo, National Geographic, and countless others. Heather has severed on several non-profit boards and most recently has worked with the DC Diaper Bank and Shepherds Table.
