During the month of November, the UVA Club of Washington, DC is partnering with the Virginia Tech Club of DC to sponsor a competition to raise the most funds and donations for the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC). There are several ways to participate, including bringing donations to a football game watch, joining us at our service event at the end of November, or donating online.
Donate to AFAC online to help us reach our goal of $5,000. If we beat Virginia Tech, we’ll receive a $50 donation to our Club’s scholarship fund. Please donate before the November 30 deadline!
New this year, the drive will end with a family-friendly service event at AFAC’s warehouse to bag produce or bulk dry goods into individual portions for distribution to the 2,300+ client families who come to AFAC each week. Join us on Friday, November 30 from 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. to help out. Children ages 5+ welcome (but please note for safety reasons, children under 5 cannot attend and children 5-12 should be supervised by their families). Space is limited – please commit to attending if you register for this event.
We will also have a box for physical donations at the November football game watches at Town Hall. During the November 2nd Pitt game watch, attendees will receive a door prize ticket for each food donation item they contribute. AFAC is most in need of the following low-sugar and low-sodium items: canned tuna, canned soup, canned vegetables, peanut butter (in plastic jars), and cereal.
We hope you’ll join us to help eliminate hunger in our area and of course, to beat Tech!
