NCC Contributes to AFAC’s “Gimme Some Sugar!” Food Drive
This month, NCC employees happily participated in the Arlington Food Assistance Center’s (AFAC) “Gimme Some Sugar!” food drive. NCC donated 10 bags of sugar, 10 bags of flour, and six bottles of cooking oil to AFAC. The items were then delivered to AFAC for distribution this week.
In November, NCC’s donations of potato mixes, stuffing boxes, and cans of gravy to AFAC’s “Put the Giving in Thanksgiving” food drive made up 15 complete Thanksgiving baskets. Additionally, NCC team members have volunteered their time at AFAC’s food distribution center and served as AFAC ambassadors for a wine tasting at the Shirlington Wine and Jazz Festival. In October, two NCC employees attended the Chiefs vs. Chefs Live Cooking Challenge, with proceeds going to AFAC.
NCC began supporting AFAC in April. The organization is a local non-profit organization that offers supplemental groceries to over 1,600 Arlington families each week. AFAC utilizes the Choice Model , allowing families in need to choose from a variety of breads, meats, canned goods, and beverages rather than being given a pre-packed bag of groceries. Although the “Gimme Some Sugar!” food drive has concluded, AFAC accepts donations of food items year round at their food distribution center located at 2708 South Nelson Street in Arlington.
In our vision to deliver a GOOD future, NCC is proud to support and promote locally-based non-profit organizations like AFAC. We ask you to consider donating this winter so that local families in need can have a happy holiday season.
