Richanda Hall has come to Arlington Charities on and off. Most recently, she started coming again after losing a job in December. She asserts that “everybody is very nice and helpful, and I feel very comfortable coming here.” As someone who suffers from PTSD and depression, Richanda often is on the lookout for ways “to see the good in the world when there is so much bad.” She has found a nugget of good at Arlington Charities. “There are good people here and a community coming together to do good. Volunteers always exceed expectations and give great suggestions for food” says Richanda. She appreciates the simple and non-invasive process of setting up appointments.
Outside of Arlington Charities, Richanda explores a variety of interests. She recently has become obsessed with people who conver vans, school-buses, and ambulances into functional mobile homes and hopes to one day try this eclectic hobby herself. Richanda has also taken up meditation to learn to combat her depression. In the future, she hopes to go to school for I.T. but until then she is very excited to have recently landed a new job in customer support. “I think I might not even have to come back to the pantry in March,” Richanda declared excitedly.
