Thinking of you


Twice monthly, senior citizens and those with mobility issues can receive free groceries delivered right to their home. This program was developed at the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis. Its goal was to help alleviate hunger among homebound residents and provided a form of socialization to folks who have been isolated. The food pantry did not want our neighbors in need to have to make the difficult decision between preparing and eating a nutritious meal or getting a prescription filled.

To personalize the delivery, Arlington Charities has implemented a ‘Share a Smile, Send a Card’ project where these clients will receive a hand-written note or card with their bundle of groceries.


Long-time Arlington resident and hairstylist extraordinaire, Debbie Rivas put her heart and creativity to work when she found out Arlington Charities was looking for a way to spread joy to our homebound clients. She dropped off over 50 super cute hand-crafted cards last Friday. We so appreciate Debbie and the time she dedicated to make grocery deliveries extra special for our clients.
