An­gels find a new home

The Dundalk Eagle - - FRONT PAGE - By CHAR­LENE MAYO cmayo@ches­

For six weeks, An­gels Sup­port­ing Your Troops has been as­sem­bling care pack­ages for sol­diers from their new home at The Church of God in Dun­dalk.

For years, the “An­gels” used Son­shine Fel­low­ship Church.

“Pas­tor Terry Turbin had a vi­sion to build a Chris­tian school, and they needed the build­ing we were us­ing,” founder of An­gels Sup­port­ing Your Troops, Irene Spatafore, said.

Once Spatafore found out that she would have to re­lo­cate, she be­gan reach­ing out to dif­fer­ent es­tab­lish­ments.

“I called 22 dif­fer­ent places from busi­nesses to churches, to of­fices — no one would take us on,” Spata­tore said.

Even­tu­ally, Spatafore got in con­tact with The Church of God and learned that they had a build­ing that was a for­mer school.

“The Church of God wel­comed us and let’s us use two of their class­rooms in the build­ing,” Spatafore said.

The “An­gels” are still ac­cept­ing es­sen­tial sup­plies and mon­e­tary donations to send over­seas to United States Troops.

To make a do­na­tion, you can con­tact Irene Spatafore at 410-284-5275 or drop ma­te­ri­als off on the pic­nic ta­ble (not the front porch) at 7914 Deihlwood Rd, Dun­dalk Md. 21222.

Irene Spatafore, founder of An­gels Sup­port­ing Your Troops, of­fered a look at some of the good­ies she and her an­gels send to the troops over­seas.
