Volunteer packs food at Arlington Charities

Arlington Charities is hard at work feeding families as the need for food assistance climbs. The nonprofit organization typically feeds about 70 families a day. That number has more than doubled since coronavirus began spreading through the country, forcing businesses to close.

If you need help:

Arlington Charities is offering drive-through services with appointment windows opening each morning. Workers and volunteers will place food in your trunk, to minimize interaction. All families are eligible to receive food once every two weeks.

The nonprofit is also working with Arlington ISD, giving families priority access to available time slots.

You can make an appointment by calling 817-275-1511 Monday through Friday. The phone line opens at 8:30 a.m.

How to help:

Arlington Charities is following a strict sanitation process to protect volunteers, employees and clients. As a result, the organization is limiting private food donations.

Monetary donations are most helpful at this time. Click here to donate.
