Fifty percent of AFAC clients speak Spanish so Spanish-speaking volunteers are always appreciated. This fall, we particularly need help with 2 projects. For more information on either one, email us at

1) Beginning the week of September 19th, AFAC's new Healthy Play Initiative program--a pilot program designed to provide children accompanying their parent or guardian to an AFAC distribution center 30-45 minutes of safe, structured healthy play--will kickoff!

We will need a maximum of nine volunteers dedicated to this program, who can commit to help HPI leaders for the length of the school year. Ideally, we would have the same three volunteers at each site during HPI time/distribution time each week. The sites and times are:
  • Arlington Mill Community Center--Mondays--10:45am to 1:15pm
  • South Nelson Street--Wednesdays--9:45am to 12:15pm
  • Gates of Ballston (Buckingham)--Fridays--12:45pm to 3:15pm
2) We need volunteers to help in the warehouse on weekday mornings, 9:15am-12:30pm. You'll help sort and bag donated food or help clients in the distribution area. One time or weekly shifts available at AFAC's Nelson Street location, 2708 S. Nelson Street.
