Every week AFAC volunteers deliver 200 bags of healthy, child-friendly food to students in Arlington Public Schools as part of our Backpack Buddy program. Jim Hamlin and Kirby Kingsley have been making the deliveries for 5 years with John Pfeiffer joining the Friday morning team a few years ago.
When asked why they volunteer, they said ” Anything that helps a kid in need is worth doing. Kudos to AFAC for providing such an incredible support service for our youth. Just happy to be apart of the great team.”
We appreciate their efforts and the work of the Thursday morning drivers in getting food to hungry children in Arlington.
