donation station by the numbers infographic

On Friday, we opened a drive-thru donation station and were quickly overwhelmed by Arlington's generosity and selflessness. In just five hours, we saw over 500 cars come through the Central Library Parking lot, dropping off gloves, masks, food and more. 


In the coming days, we'll be distributing the donated supplies to assist essential employees, nonprofits and community organizations in response operations (places like senior living facilities, healthcare providers and shelters).
