While we still want to reach 3,000 pounds hopefully this Sunday, the focus of this collection is to raise cash for Arlington Community Services (ACS).  ACS does more than manage a food pantry for its neediest residents .  They have recreational activities as well as academic and social counseling.  While they have limited funding, they also assist their clients with overdue bills when resources are available.  We are trying to fund this basket of services with the Special Collection so we are looking for as much cash as you can part with.  When locals come to UUCJ for help, we refer them to Arlington Community Services.  Before starting special collections program, we use to budget $1,000 in our the UUCJ annual budget.  We now have special collection in lieu of the budget item.  Yes, also bring the food if you can.
