For our Back 2 School Mobile Food Market, we are expecting up to 400 families to receive supplemental groceries and need your help! We will be packing and distributing food for our drive-through market.

Volunteers need to arrive promptly at 8:15am and park adjacent to our building (clients will line up across the street. Please do not park there). Dress for the weather - it is going to be HOT with triple-digit temps expected! Shorts, ballcaps and sunscreen are recommended. This is an outdoor event where lifting and carrying food, boxes and bags that may weigh up to 15 pounds or more is required, as well as standing for long periods of time, and loading food into vehicle trunks/truck beds.

Your volunteerism is greatly appreciated. Arlington Charities and your neighbors in need thank you too!
