Student Athletes Show "Can Do" Spirit with Donation to Arlington Food Assistance Center

Wednesday, January 04, 2012
Arlington, Va. – Marymount University’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee collected and donated 369 pounds of food to the Arlington Food Assistance Center over the 2011-12 holiday season.

Now over 20 years after its founding, the AFAC remains dedicated to its simple but critical mission of obtaining and distributing groceries, directly and free of charge, to people living in Arlington who cannot afford to purchase enough food to meet their basic needs.

AFAC is the only organization in Arlington dedicated solely to providing supplemental groceries to individuals and families in need. It serves over 1,400 families each week to ensure that children, seniors and entire families are not forgotten.
