Below are some of the community service activities that we, our families, partners and clients participate in every year and over the past months.
Wreaths Across America Cleanup
2nd Annual Apple Gleaning at Marker Miller Farms
Artlin once again joined the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) at Marker Miller Farm in Winchester, VA to glean apples. AFAC provides neighbors in need with nutritious groceries of their choosing. To avoid food waste, they let people choose what foods they would like.

Artlin joined the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) at Marker Miller Farm in Winchester, VA to glean apples leftover from this season’s harvest for the first time. In addition to several other volunteer groups gleaning at Marker Miller, Arltin helped AFAC harvest 2,660 pounds of apples! These apples will be included in the groceries and student lunches delivered to the average of 2,200 client families that AFAC serves each week.
Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment
Artlin consultants and families recently participated in the Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment (ACE) annual Fall Cleanup at Barcroft Park. Artlin helped collect over 55 bags of trash and recyclables, which supported ACE’s mission to make Arlington a cleaner and more sustainable community.
Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) ‘Stuff the Bus’ Event
Artlin Consultants participated in the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) ‘Stuff the Bus’ event in September by staffing a food drive at a local grocery store. AFAC collects and distributes groceries to help feed neighbors. Thanks to volunteer participation and the generous donations of Arlingtonians, AFAC was able to ‘stuff the bus’ with more than 2,500 pounds of beans, tomatoes, tuna, cereal and other much-needed items for the 2,200 client families that visit them each week.
Friends of Homeless Animals
In July, a team from Artlin made a trip out to Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA) in Aldie, Virginia to help beautify the premises. Artlin took a tour of the facility which houses 100’s of dogs and cats. The team helped with mulching, weeding and gardening. FOHA is a wonderful, no-kill shelter that focuses on the rescue and placement of homeless dogs and cats in the Northern Virginia and Washington DC area. They rely on the support of volunteers and donations from the public to continue their rescue efforts.
