Having trouble fitting volunteering into your busy schedule? Here’s a project you can do on your own schedule. Go with friends to distribute flyers to all the houses in your neighborhood. We’ll provide the flyers so please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to help.
Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive
On the 2nd Saturday of every May, letter carriers all across the country pick up food donations left by residential mailboxes and drop them off to their local food pantries. All food donated from Arlington County residents goes here to AFAC. During the weeks leading up to the food drive, we need help from volunteers to leaflet flyers to all the neighborhoods in Arlington to remind everyone to leave donations by their mailboxes on Saturday. Email us at email@example.com if you or your group would like to help.
Hunger Action Month
September is Hunger Action Month. We’ll have gleaning, a Stuff the Bus food drive, a movie night and more. We need volunteers to put up posters throughout Arlington and helpers to pass out flyers at local farmers’ markets. Sign up to help on our online calendar, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 703-845-8486.
If you or your children like to color, help AFAC publicize the Boy Scout Food Drive in November and the Letter Carriers Food Drive in May by making posters and hanging them in your neighborhood.
