Help Fight Hunger In Arlington- Dismantle The Canstruction Exhibit

RSS XML FeedBackground Active Mar 20, 2009 to Apr 5, 2009

On Sunday, April 5, AFAC is dismantling the Canstruction exhibit set up by teams of architectural firms at Ballston Commons; and, moving close to 60,000 pounds of canned food to the warehouse. AFAC needs volunteers for a myriad of jobs that will undertake the moving of thousands of canned goods. Without the help of volunteers it would be an impossible task! Please join us in this project. You will be able to help a vulnerable population of families with children, senior citizens and individuals who have recently lost their jobs.

All volunteers for this event need to have physical strength to lift crates full of canned goods. Teenagers (14+) will be accepted for this volunteer job with permissions of their parents and able to meet the same requirements. We need the volunteers for the following times and tasks:
