Mission & Purpose


We believe the bonds of our heritage brings us together to be a part of something bigger than ourselves as individuals for the common cause of promoting Italian culture and raising money for other 501c3 organizations in Maryland. Our charitable giving focuses on the areas of education, family and child services, mental health, and addiction. Our reach has grown since 2013, and we believe we can touch countless more people with our increased charity work. YOU can become an important part of the mission we started!

We have some amazing members who do incredible things. Sometimes we don’t always know who is helping where, because so many of our members help out all over the county.

Here is a perfect example, during Thanksgiving of 2020, @tony.giangiordano received a request from @LASOSBelAir in Hartford, Co. that they needed help with assembling food bags for those in need that would be arriving at 11 am.

When Tony asked her how many people, she had stuffing food she said 2. 🀨

How were they going to get this done?

Lasos needed to have 250 bags stuffed and ready to load by 11 am. Tony called a few SIAB brothers and boom!

We all showed up at 9 am and knocked it out. A typical brotherhood of helping kind of thing. So if you are interested in helping those around you feel free to reach out. You can PM or hop on our website, www.thesiab.org/, to learn more.

In this photo we have: Tony Giangiordano, Nick Berte, Lou Romano, Mike DeLuca,
Tony DiPaula, Jason Adams, and Sophia Adams. We are so grateful to have such wonderful people supporting our local 501c3s!

where it going to be

#MotivationalMonday β€œI came, I saw, I conquered.”

Some consider this quote to be full of arrogance and bravado, because let’s be honest, Julius Caesar was full of that. Hindsight though always is 20/20. In the moment we feel like we are all struggling through the mud.

Today we are thankful to be here in this country because of our ancestors. And yes, we can’t be prouder of the fact that we are Italian Americans πŸ˜‰. That never sways us from our mission to help those around us. Like our ancestors, we have a mission bigger than ourselves, helping our community!

This mission is supported by all of our followers and friends. We cannot say thank you enough for getting us to 10-years. Here’s to 10 more!

Grazie!

Thank you for all you do for the community πŸ™πŸΌ

Sondra Poole Magness. For 4 H ?

As a small non-profit organization we had the original goal of raising a million dollars to support our community. We haven’t hit our goal yet, but each year we are getting closer to our end goal!

This year to celebrate our 10th anniversary we are doing even more #charitablegiving in our community than ever before. Try $50,000 more than we have ever given.

We are composed entirely of individuals working full-time in other corporate jobs or our own private businesses. All of our spare time outside of fun with family and friends is dedicated to improving our community through our time and energy. Our Italian heritage seems to help us be more charismatic within the community and facilitate more charitable giving.

Our simple infographic breaks down our charitable giving for 2023. If you want to be a part of that go to www.thesiab.org/charitable-giving/grants/ and apply.
