Monthly Volunteering at AFAC Begins
Seven St. Michael’s volunteers inaugurated our monthly outreach at the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) on October 3. The team bagged these cartons of apples for distribution to AFAC’s 5,000 families in need of supplemental food. AFAC relies on over 50,000 volunteer hours valued at $1.5M to assist with all aspects of food distribution. Food insecurity has increased during COVID-19.
St. Michael’s volunteers will be participating on the first Saturday each month, from 12:30–2:30 PM to bag produce for distribution to AFAC families during the coming week. Sign up here or contact Linda Kelleher at 703-346-9808. We are hoping to have 10 volunteers in November!
