After seeing increased food insecurity in their area due to Covid-19, Arlington ISD Energy Management decided to use one of their popular annual events to help. Back in April, the committee hosted their 5K marathon called the Super Saver Fun Run to benefit Arlington Charities. Participants from different AISD energy departments had the choice of either paying a $5 entrance fee or making a donation to enter the race.



RACING TOWARDS FIGHTING HUNGER


The Super Saver Fun Run has been a beloved AISD event since 2014. It was initially started to raise money for grants and promote energy saving ideas within the district. This year, due to concerns about Covid-19, the run was “virtual”, meaning that racers would create their own local routes to avoid contact. 150 runners participated and raised a whopping $1,200 for Arlington Charities.



MAKING A DIFFERENCE TOGETHER


Arlington Charities greatly appreciates the AISD Energy Committee for their dedication to community and clean energy. We were so excited to be a part of this years event!

The Arlington Charities Home Delivery Program has been helping over one hundred clients with disabilities and mobility impairments get food for over a year. However, the very first client to sign up for the program was Nathan.


Nathan started receiving food during the height of the pandemic in 2020. “The extra groceries have come in handy and have been a real blessing,” he asserts. As a diabetic, Nathan has to watch what he eats and is grateful that the delivery program can cater to his dietary needs. He enjoys receiving steak and chicken, but also loves the large selection of fresh veggies as well.

The Arlington Charities home delivery program provides assistance to individuals with mobility issues or who lack transportation to get to our food pantry. Over the past year, the program has grown to serve over 100 clients, including Johnny.


Johnny has been receiving deliveries for about a year. His entire family is grateful for the help that the program provides. Each of them enjoys different foods and Johnny finds himself appreciative that there is so much variety. For example, he is more partial to chicken while his wife enjoys pork chops, steaks, and ground beef. Their granddaughter, however, is always sure to snatch up the cookies. In his free time, Johnny loves to garden and has a truly stunning variety of plants lining his entranceway.
