Holiday Food Drive: November 1 – January 5
Every year, November and December mark a new milestone with record high numbers of client visits. With more families coming to AFAC in need, we need your help to stock our shelves with healthy non-perishable items. This is a great time of year for offices, apartment buildings, and community groups to rally together to collect food for AFAC.
The holiday season is AFAC’s busiest time of the year. We encourage you to pick up food drive boxes and deliver your food collection to AFAC’s warehouse at 2706 S. Nelson St, Arlington, 22206 and get a glimpse of where the food will be served. If you require a delivery or pickup, please note it on your registration form and an AFAC volunteer driver will deliver food drive boxes and/or pick up food donations. Please allow 3 business days between registration and box delivery or pickup. Drop-offs are best between 1-4 PM, Monday – Friday. Please contact Lily Duran at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your visit.
Please note that AFAC will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Years Day, with limited staff the days before and after those holidays. If you’d like your food collection to be on the shelves for clients by Thanksgiving or Christmas, please plan to deliver your donation 1 week prior to allow for sorting and stocking. Thank you for helping Arlington families to enjoy a warm meal with family this holiday season.
