In an unprecedented collaboration, 13 real estate firms are joining forces to provide winter essentials for those in need throughout the Arlington community. The firms are working together as Arlington Realtors Care (ARC) to collect from the public donated food and clothing items. These items will then be delivered from their offices to The Arlington Food Assistance Center and A-Span. The food and clothing drive started on Nov. 1 and will continue through Dec. 31. The goal of the ARC drive is to bring aid to those most in need.
For members of the public who are interested in donating, the main drop off point is at RGS Title located at 4600 Lee Highway, Suite 110, Arlington. They will host two community wide drop off dates on Nov. 19 and Dec. 17. Items will be delivered from the participating ARC partners to the individual charitable organizations. Clothing items will be delivered to A-SPAN, an organization that strives to end homelessness in Arlington through housing and ongoing case management. Food donations will be delivered to The Arlington Food Assistance Center, a community-based non-profit that provides supplemental groceries to Arlington residents.
