Amber Coffman, The Severn School, Severna Park, is the director and founder of “Happy Helpers for the Homeless." Every Saturday, she and several volunteers make 600 bag lunches at her home, which they then distribute to the homeless, along with thousands of toiletries, blankets, clothing items and resource books. Since her program originated in 1993, Coffinan has given 2,000 hours of service to the homeless.

"The most important part of my program is to give people love."
