Our Services

Food & Clothing

Providing food and clothing is our main focus. These services are provided each day to families who meet eligibility requirements. In 2019, 2,268,689 lbs of food were distributed and 18,871 articles of clothing were donated.

Senior Service Days
Due to the Covid-19 crisis, Arlington Charities is now delivering food directly to our partner facilities to avoid contact.
More Information

On the 2nd Thursday and Friday of every month, Arlington Charities hosts distribution days geared specifically towards the diverse needs of our senior clientele. Low sodium, low sugar, and easy to prepare foods are provided to seniors in an accessible and low stress environment.

Arlington Charities is partnered with Handi-Tran shuttle services to transport seniors with mobility issues to our pantry from select living facilities including the Magnolias Apartments, Johnson Village, Claremont, and Arlington New Beginnings.

Hygiene Items & Household Goods

Hygiene items are given daily (as resources allow) and include diapers, soap, shampoo, and dental products. Household goods include blankets, pillows and kitchenware. Also, clients having a baby are given a generous layette, made up of new and gently used clothing and accessories.

 

Holiday Food Baskets & Toys

862 families received holiday help in 2019. Clients must apply directly and a small donation is requested to hold their reservation.

 

 Toys are distributed to food and clothing clients as a “last chance” effort.

MOBILE Pantries

Due to the Covid-19 crisis, Arlington Charities will host Mobile Pantries on a regular basis to impact more members of our community. These are open to anyone without the need for an appointment.

Lunch for the Homeless

Three days per week, lunches are provided to homeless individuals in our area. They may also get a change of clothing. In 2019, 5,198 lunches were served.

Email  marsha@arlingtoncharities.org if you are interested in donating a lunch.

Satellite Pantry at Tarrant County College

Food insecurity in college students is a pervasive, yet largely ignored problem. At Tarrant County College (TCC) staff and health services heard horror stories of kids not eating for over 48 hours or reporting headaches and abdominal pains from lack of food. Arlington Charities sponsors a satellite food pantry  at TCC Southeast Campus that provides easy to prepare meals and snack items perfect for the busy life of a college student.
