Thank Yous
Huge thanks to the Arlington Soccer Association 2007 Girls Academy soccer team for surpassing their fundraising goal to help AFAC! After raising over $9,000 in 2020, they were able to raise over $11,000 during this year’s campaign. We appreciate their awesome dedication and support!
Thank you to the neighbors of North Burlington Street for supporting AFAC at their block party concert! Entertainment was provided by Bob McDonald on vocals and Tony Nalker on the piano. They raised $1,400 and donated 140 lbs to help AFAC feed our neighbors in need.
Thank you to Bean Kinney & Korman employees for collecting and donating 1,449 boxes of cereal for AFAC families to enjoy as a breakfast option on our distribution shelves!
