Food Bank thanks community for support | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Those of us at the Arlington Food Bank wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to all the organizations who were involved in helping us with our holiday food drive. It was with the assistance of those in the Arlington and Lakewood School Districts and the Arlington Fire Department’s Santa Run, along with considerable support from the food drives at our local grocery stores, that we received substantial food donations which made the holiday food drive a huge success. Overall, our community enabled us to assist more than 300 families for this past holiday season. Your kindness helped so many who have so little.

We would also like to convey our appreciation to those who gave a hand in moving the Arlington Food Bank to our temporary building.  We could not function as a community service organization without the help of our community.  And without everyone’s support, we would not have been nor continue to be successful in helping those in need.

Again, we thank you.
