Happy Thanksgiving, ARLnow readers!
I have a lot to be thankful for this year and believe many of you feel the same way, despite the roller coaster of 2020 we’ve all been experiencing.
While this year has been anything but ordinary or predictable, there is one thing that remains true and all too persistent: Now more than ever there are a lot of people out there who need help and assistance, and the basic necessity of all human beings, regardless of race, income or education, is the need for food.
Arlington is a community, and communities come together in good times and in hard times. There are a lot of people doing a lot of good in our community, and it doesn’t go unnoticed, but the need is much greater than you might be aware.
As the weather gets colder and those of us who are fortunate enough to spend more time inside do, we may lose sight of those who are struggling. It’s harder to get by, to stay warm and to stay nourished through the winter for those who are less fortunate.
Even though Arlington is overall a very wealthy community, right now there are more families, seniors and others here who need help than usual. They have been deeply and adversely impacted by the pandemic and recession, and they do not have the resources to get through this on their own.
Arlington Food Assistance Center, or AFAC for short, is providing a lifeline by always distributing food to those in need. AFAC can’t do this on their own though — it takes volunteering efforts and donations from residents and local businesses to fill the gap and help those in need.
AFAC reported that they have seen a 45 percent increase of families in need since the start of the pandemic.
AFAC accepts food donations, monetary donations and volunteers to accomplish their mission — to provide dignified access to groceries for those in need.
Please consider donating to AFAC. Whether it is your time, a financial contribution or dropping off food, our community needs you ,and you can enable AFAC to continue serving our wonderful community.
This week the Andors Real Estate Group dropped off five turkeys, five hams and 10 grocery store gift cards to AFAC, and it’s nice to know that at least a few families have just a little bit more to be thankful for this year. We hope you’ll also consider making a contribution and making a difference. If every one of my ARLnow readers donated just $25 to AFAC, you would put over $50,000 towards feeding those who are truly in need, and I know they would be thankful.
