Volunteers are needed at the school's Family Market, a monthly food distribution event for low income families whose children attend Carlin Springs Elementary School. Food is provided by the Capital Area Food Bank. Items include boxed and canned goods, fresh vegetables and fruit.
From 6:15pm until 7pm, volunteers help unpack and sort the donated food. At 7pm, each family enters the room and selects food from the various food stations. We regularly serve almost 100 families every month. Knowledge of Spanish is helpful but not necessary. This event provides much needed food to students and their families who are struggling to make ends meet. Blue Community Corps is the community service arm of the Arlington County Democratic Party. We exist to work within Arlington County to provide unique service opportunities in conjunction with local non-profits and civic organizations. Our events are a great way to have fun, connect with important local causes, and to strengthen our great community. This event is a kid and family friendly event, and is a great way to give back to our community. We hope to see you on the 19th at 6pm!
