APAH's Holiday Magic
January 6, 2002: On December 18, St. Michael's supported the Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing (APAH) Holiday Magic event. In total, 98 families (193 children) received holiday gift cards and enjoyed treats, crafts, games, music, and pictures with Santa. Our volunteers helped serve treats and enjoyed fellowship with APAH residents, other community volunteers, and the APAH staff.
Going forward, we need a member of St. Michael's to act as a “Shepherd” for our work with APAH. The Shepherd will be our primary interface with APAH and coordinate future events with support from the Outreach Committee. If you are feeling called to this service opportunity or would like to learn more, please contact the church office. APAH builds and owns rental housing that is affordable for Arlington's low wage earners. For more information, see apah.org.
