We attended the Arlington Community Foundation's annual gala last week and what a great time we had learning about all of the different non-profits right here in the Arlington community.
Recently, we've been spotlighting a series of philanthropies as we gear-up for our Habitat Build Day later this month that we're sponsoring with The Shooshan Company, an Arlington developer. From Living Vicky to the Offender Aid and Restoration Program of Arlington County -- these are programs that help make Arlington special.
So what makes the Arlington Community Foundation so special? Just check out a few of their countless initiatives that help people of all ages.
Their Youth Philanthropy initiative helps prepare high school students for a life of community service. Their Hoffman-Boston initiative helps an underprivileged elementary school pass learning standards. And their Senior Engagement provides crucial services to our senior citizens.
We had a great time attending the ACF's annual gala -- but we knew it was for a great cause, too.
