Arlington Charities is excited to welcome Wendy to our team as our new Community Outreach Coordinator.


This heavy metal loving powerhouse packs some serious experience in writing and marketing management. For 23 years, she worked for the Star Telegram before becoming a Community Marketing Manager for the last six years of her employment there. As Community Marketing Manager, she negotiated sponsorships, promoted fundraisers, and marketed products. The skills she learned at these positions helped her start her own business, WeWoo Marketing, where she helps clients with branding and online reputation.

 

Bringing Communities Together


After taking some time to herself to travel, Wendy decided to bring her unique set of skills to Arlington Charities in order to better help her community. As community outreach coordinator, Wendy is driven to let our community know “who we are, what we do, and that we are here to feed the public.” Her goal is to get out in the community to meet several new businesses a week and secure several big partnerships a year.

 

Personal Life


In her free time, Wendy loves to paint rocks and birdhouses as well as listen to plenty of Rage Against the Machine, Alice in Chains, and Metallica. We are thrilled to have her on our team!

Arlington Charities is thrilled to welcome Robert as our new Program Director.


Robert is a marathon runner and social worker who has already taken a running start at revitalizing our programs. Spouting a Master’s in Social Work from UT Arlington, Robert has worked in child protective services and was a probation officer for twenty four years. After retiring from his previous job in Federal Law Enforcement in June 2020, he began to search for a part time job where he could use his social working skills to give back to the community. The mission of Arlington Charities really resonated with him, especially after seeing all the news coverage during the pandemic about food insecurity and the long lines of cars at food banks. To Robert, it felt like the right time to help.

 

Crafting More Accessible Programs


As Program Director, Robert oversees and assists with many programs, including food distribution, home delivery, utility assistance, case management, and lunches for individuals experiencing homelessness. He works to manage volunteers and staff who carry out these programs on a daily basis. Robert’s goal is to make more individuals aware of our programs and make them more accessible to our community.

 

Personal Life


In his free time, Robert loves eating food and running marathons, of which he has completed nineteen to date. He has a Chihuahua named Jasmine who runs his life.

Arlington Charities is thrilled to welcome Georgia as our new Volunteer Coordinator.


Georgia's bubbly personality and can-do attitude have already won over both new and longtime volunteers. The nonprofit world is Georgia’s happy place, and she has loved working at various organizations for the past ten years. Previously, she has worked as a dance instructor and educator at Alliance For Children. However, she found her calling in volunteer recruitment for Meals on Wheels Tarrant County and the Salvation Army.

 

Creating a volunteer family


As the Volunteer Coordinator, Georgia’s job is to coordinate and schedule current volunteers as well as recruit new ones to join our team. She hopes to create a tight knit volunteer family with the singular goal of feeding Arlington. “It’s a great sign that we have so many volunteers that have been here such a long time,” asserted Georgia. “We want to make sure that they feel appreciated with a wider range of volunteer activities.” Georgia also hopes to create a more diverse group of volunteers in terms of age, gender, and ethnicity. “There doesn’t have to be one mold,” she stresses. “For example, schoolchildren love to make cards!”

 

Personal Life


Outside of Arlington Charities, Georgia is a mother of a two year old and runs a photography business with her husband of six years. She loves to eat food, play piano, and sing.
