Skills on the Hill Hosts an "I CAN" Food Drive
Updated: Nov 6
We launched the "I Can Do Hard Things" campaign to help all the families in our community remember that they are capable of overcoming the challenges and obstacles that they may be facing whether those challenges be virtual learning, teletherapy, or dealing with the realities of living in a pandemic. We want to help families in our communities to reach new heights and feel supported by their local pediatric therapy clinic. This is why we started the "I CAN" food drive to help feed families in need in the Arlington area.
Skills on the Hill will be hosting a food drive starting on November 2nd and ending on November 16th to help feed families this Thanksgiving. AFAC experiences its highest number of family visits during the months of November and December.
If you want cans or food, please bring all donations to the Virginia or DC SOTH clinic. We will be collecting all donations and taking them to AFAC on November 18th to allow enough time for sorting.
According to their site:
AFAC is most in need of the following low sugar & low sodium items:
Peanut butter (in plastic jars)
Please refrain from donating foods that are opened, expired, prepared meals, or packaged in glass. We also do not accept ice packs, styrofoam coolers, or plastic bags as donations.
When choosing items to donate, look for labels that read: low sodium, no salt added, no sugar added, unsweetened, 100% fruit juice, etc.
If you find that you cannot bring donations to the clinic or want to continue supporting AFAC, consider donating via our online fundraising campaign. 100% of the proceeds go to feeding families in Arlington. Find our campaign here: https://afac.org/campaign/skills-on-the-hill
