The Tara-Leeway Heights Civic Association is partnering with the Arlington Community Corps, a new, non-profit volunteer organization established to make sure that neighbors can help neighbors get through the Covid-19 crisis.
The Community Corps is arranging a 'buddy system' so that everyone who needs help has a neighbor who can assist. They're also running a food drive for the larger Arlington Community.
We have three immediate needs for help:
Become a neighborhood section leader - members of the Tara-Leeway board organized our neighborhood into simple 'sections' - i.e. the streets and areas nearest your home in Tara-Leeway. As leader you would assist with printing and distributing flyers to about 25 houses in your section. Unfortunately the people who most need assistance are likely not on the digital outlets, which is why we want to distribute a flyer.
- Volunteer for a future neighbor in need. Those in need may not be immediately apparent, but we want to have people in place and ready to help if and when needs begin to arise.
- Donate to the food bank. This crisis is making it especially hard for many families to feed themselves right now. In partnership with Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) we're collecting canned goods (no glass), rice, pasta, and peanut butter to provide to our fellow citizens.
To volunteer, please complete this form or send an email to Meredith Judy, TLHCA board member.
To donate food, please drop your items at 1701 Patrick Henry Drive or contact TLHCA board member Laura Stout for questions.
