SHARING A SMILE
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.
HAND CRAFTED HEART
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.
