Brain Power Volunteers help AFAC by donating their professional services. Consider joining our PR, Development or Finance Committees. Not a meeting person? Contact Charlie Meng, our Acting Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org, to develop a personalized volunteering schedule. Volunteering can also help you develop skills. Consider learning some new skills while helping AFAC.
There are many ways you can help
AFAC can spread the word about its work and increase support from the
community. You can help us plan a leafletting blitz and
corresponding food drives. Contact us at email@example.com
if you'd like to help plan these fun events.
Accenture employees help clean and move food.
HAVE A CLEANING BLAST!
Claim a Saturday afternoon for your group to help AFAC
behind-the-scenes. These once/monthly cleaning events might
include cleaning rugs, washing windows, cleaning coolers, vacuuming our
vans, washing waiting room chairs, scrubbing and painting walls,
shampooing carpets. A clean AFAC means staff can better serve our
clients. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an afternoon cleaning opportunity.
GO GLEAN FOR AFAC
Help AFAC by picking fresh vegetables and fruits from local farms and
orchards. Or sort vegetables and fruits indoors. Your group
can arrange to glean fields with the Mid-Atlantic Gleaning Network, one
of AFAC's local partners. Some of the produce you pick can be
brought back to AFAC and a portion will go to other food banks. Contact Susan Calligari, AFAC's Gleaning Coordinator at email@example.com for information on how to sign up.
Join AFAC's Plot Against Hunger program. Plant some
tomato and pepper seedlings for AFAC clients who have gardening space
and for community gardeners who are participating in our Plant a Row
for the Hungry project. Have surplus vegetables over the summer
months? Donate them! Start an extra row or two of vegetables and
mark it "Stake Against Hunger". Start a garden in your child's
school or at your faith-based organization. For information,
contact Puwen Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOLD A FOOD DRIVE
Why wait for our annual food drives? Hold one of your own! Over
60% of the food AFAC receives is donated to us. This is a great
opportunity for students, schools and other organizations to get
involved in the essential work of AFAC throughout the year. We
also need re-usable brown grocery bags. See our food drive page and contact Magda
Jaskot, Food Drive Coordinator at AFAC for more information, email@example.com, (703) 845-8486.
These are some of the many ways you can further our mission here at
AFAC. We hope you can join us!
