Flea Market To Support Veterans

The Severna Park High School Leadership Institute will be hosting a flea market at the school on April 14.

(SPHS) Leadership Institute will be hosting a flea market to support and raise money for Segs4vets in the front parking lot of the high school from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 14, according to a news announcement.

Segs4vets, a nonprofit organization, is dedicated to giving segways to amputee veterans in order to help them return to their everyday lifestyle.

Vendors can rent a table for $20, with additional tables for $10, and this fee will go directly to help veterans. Vendors can sell their unwanted items for a personal profit. Those unable to attend the flea market can also donate items to be sold at the flea market with the profits going directly to Segs4Vets. Tables are still available, according to the news announcement.

"The main objective of the Leadership Institute is to raise money or awareness to different organizations and to help give back to our community," wrote SPHS leadership student Rachel Harris in an email to Patch. Other charity projects by the club include Soles4Souls and Alex's Lemonade Stand, she said.

To rent a table, email jbest@aacps.org. Also, donations will be accepted at Segways4vets.org.

What a great way to get rid of unwanted items and benefit an organization that is doing great things for our veterans. Good job Rachel, one of my Girl Scouts from SPES. I'm proud of you for taking this on.
