Affordable Housing Provider AHC Serves Over 40 Turkeys To Community Members

Local affordable housing provider AHC Inc. has given back to nearly a thousand Arlington residents this Thanksgiving season.

Over the last week, across six AHC apartment communities including the Gates of Ballston, Hunters Park, and Virginia Gardens, dozens of volunteers prepared and served 40 turkeys to 800 people.

Volunteers included groups from Amazon, Embassy Suites in Crystal City, the Marymount Women’s Lacrosse Team, and the masonic Arlington Lodge #58. The Arlington Food Assistance Center contributed food to the events.

“Thanksgiving is one of AHC’s favorite times of the year,” said AHC’s Celia Slater. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to show our appreciation for our residents and to celebrate a holiday that all can share.

This marks the 15th year AHC Inc. has been hosting Thanksgiving celebrations in its communities. The nonprofit is Arlington’s oldest and largest nonprofit affordable housing developer, managing 23 properties across Arlington with 3,000 low- and moderate-income residents. AHC also manages properties elsewhere in Virginia and Maryland.
