Catrina has been utilizing the new Arlington Charities delivery program for the past two months. With liver failure, nerve failure, and no access to a vehicle, this mother of three relies on deliveries from Arlington Charities to keep food in her house. Catrina “lives for her kids” and assures that she does “everything for them.” Part of the reason why she loves the delivery program so much is that it helps feed her children, whose favorites include chicken tacos and cereal.


Reflecting on her experience with Arlington Charites, Catrina would rate it five out of five stars, noting that we have “great customer service” and that “everyone is always helpful, especially the people who make the deliveries.” Some of her other interests include basketball, football, cooking, and putting a smile on people’s faces.

Arlington Charities is excited to roll out our new Food Delivery Program for elderly, mobility impaired, and homebound clients who otherwise wouldn't be able to make it to our drive through pantry. This program is made possible through funding from the Community Development Block Grant. We are also excited to be renting an affordable delivery van from Moritz Motor Company.


The van's maiden voyage to deliver to five program participants went swimmingly. "The van performed like a champ," says AC employee, Adam. "Everyone was super nice and appreciated me calling beforehand to make sure they were ready," asserted Adam. "I also helped unload and put away groceries for people who could not lift the heavy boxes."


Program participants get two choices of meat, a choice of vegetables and canned goods, fresh fruits, and bread. Dietary restrictions are also taken into account. If you are homebound or mobility impaired and believe you would qualify for the program, call 817-275-1511 for more information.


Irma (picture not provided) has been coming to Arlington Charities since 1992. She enjoys coming to Arlington Charities largely because of the people that work there. “They are very kind and I have never had any problems with anyone there,” asserts Irma. Throughout the years, she has seen many changes to Arlington Charities, including our new minimal contact Drive Through Pantry due to Covid-19. Irma appreciates the Drive Through Pantry, saying that, “it is safe for everyone and that it is nice to continue to be helped with food and needs.” If she could rate the experience, she would give it four out of five stars.


Outside of Arlington Charities, Irma enjoys assisting others. “I like to help people and I try to help as much as I can,” she emphasizes.
