Boy Scout Food Drive – November 11

Saturday, November 11 is the National Capital Area Boy Scout Food Drive. Many single-family homes in Arlington will receive a bag on Saturday, November 4. If you receive a bag, please consider donating non-perishable food items (canned fruit, canned vegetables, canned tuna, canned tomato products or peanut butter) by 9:00 am on Sat. November 11. Scouts will be in uniform and will not knock on your doors.
All donated food in Arlington will go to the Arlington Food Assistance Center, whose mission is to provide supplemental groceries to all Arlington families in need. AFAC currently serves 2,300 families each week. If you do not receive a bag and still would like to participate, you can leave donations at the following library branches: Aurora Hills, Central, Cherrydale, Glencarlyn, Shirlington, and Westover.
Thank you for your support of the Boy Scouts and AFAC.
