The Arlington Rotary Club (ARC) has been supporting the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) in efforts to meet the needs of county residents during the COVID-19 crisis.

This week the club is matching up to $5,000 every dollar donated through its website for the effort: arlingtonrotaryclub.org/page/donate — to support AFAC and the Bayou Bakery’s free meals initiative.

“Although the Arlington Rotary Educational Foundation (AREF) annual awards dinner scheduled for April 23rd needed to be cancelled, we do want to thank publicly our sponsors whose generosity help fund our ongoing service programs”, Neumann said.

Sponsors of this year’s AREF Scholarships include:

  • AHC
  • Art-Eclectic
  • Gary and Janice Long
  • MESH Charities
  • Embassy of the United Arab Emirates
  • The Pearl L. Deck Fund

ARC’s next major fund-raising event will be in October.
