Food Drive for AFAC
The Mission and Outreach Committee, on behalf of St. Michael's, has donated $3,000 to the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) to ensure this critical non-profit can continue to meet the needs of all Arlington County residents. Since February, AFAC has experienced a 30% increase in referrals. They expect this number to continue increasing. In addition to this monetary contribution, we are hosting a drive-by food drive on June 13. Canned items in high demand at this time include vegetables, soups, tuna and tomato products.
Volunteers will be available to collect your donations from 10 AM to 2 PM on June 13 at St. Michael’s. Please place items for donation in the trunk of your car to be retrieved by volunteers at an appropriate social distance. We will be staged for retrieval on the church side of 11th Road. Anyone wishing to volunteer to help gather items from donors, please contact Helen Hines (703-516-0547).
