Arlington Community Services Update

Mary Louise Weber, Executive Director of Arlington Community Services, is most grateful for your wonderful “Souper Bowl of Caring” contributions in February. We so appreciate you. We fed 229 clients, 20 homeless, and assisted 10 clients with rent. Thank you for helping us share God’s love in Arlington!

Current needs are Canned Tuna, Canned Chicken, Canned meat, Canned tomatoes, Dry potatoes, Hamburger Helper, Pasta sides, Rice sides, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Pasta sauce, Crackers, Snacks, Laundry detergent, Bar soap, and socks for our homeless folks. We are so very thankful for your generosity!

We had a low week for contributions this week with only 20 pounds, with one donor giving eight cans.  We were saved from this low by Arlington Community Garden that contributed 70 pounds in February.  UUCJ’s weekly donation average is 81 lbs.  While we are on pace to donate more than in 2019, we have to remember the empty shelves at ACS and the increased number of ACS clients.  Thanks for your generosity, and please look at the list above to purchase donations for the coming week.
