Thanks for keeping contributions coming. You started December with 67 lbs. on Sunday, and the Arlington Community Garden indicated they donated 6 pounds of fresh produce in November and 21 pounds in October. If we can pull off a couple of 100-pound Sundays, we will be creeping toward donating 3,300 pounds, or maybe 3,500 is possible this year.
Mary Louise Weber, executive director of Arlington Community Services, sent us this message of thanks and has identified their most significant needs at this time:
We are thankful for so many blessings at Arlington Community Services! We had a great turnout for the Crop Walk to end world hunger. We are overwhelmed and overjoyed with so many donations of food and monetary donations in November. We were able to feed 340 folks, 23 homeless, and helped 12 with rent and utilities. As we celebrate the holidays, we ask for the following to help those less fortunate in our neighborhood: Hamburger Helper, stuffing, cranberry sauce, pumpkin, dry potatoes, canned meats, canned pasta, pasta sauce, Jiffy cornbread mix, snacks, mixed vegetables, canned potatoes, laundry detergent, socks for the homeless, and gently used children’s books.
Thank you, and have a blessed holiday season!
