UVA alumni, parents, and friends are taking on Virginia Tech alumni in a charity race again this year! From November 1st until November 30th, the UVA Club of Washington, DC are competing against the DC Hokies to see which school’s club can collect more donations to benefit the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC). If we win, Virginia Tech’s Alumni Association will donate $50 to the UVA Club of Washington, DC’s Scholarship Fund!
As part of the drive, join us for a family-friendly event at AFAC’s warehouse to bag, produce, and sort food into individual portions for distribution to the 2,300+ client families who come to AFAC each week. You can also bring food donations to the event to be weighed and counted towards our tally. AFAC recommends the following low-sugar and low-sodium items: canned tuna, canned soup, canned vegetables, peanut butter (in plastic jars), and cereal. This popular event typically fills up fast, so register as soon as possible! Due to the limited space, attendees will be charged $10/group to sign up, which will be donated to AFAC if you miss the event (or didn’t notify us of your cancellation by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by 11/20). If you attend, you may either have your registration fee refunded post-event or choose to donate it to AFAC. Registration ends November 20th.
Children ages 5 and up are welcome. Please note for safety reasons, children under 5 cannot attend. Children between the ages of 5 and 12 should be supervised by an adult(s).
We hope you can join us to compete for a great cause!
