Local Ministries Supported by the Turkey Trot

Thanks to all of the Turkey Trot participants over the years.

Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless

Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless (AACH)

AACH serves families in transition in our neighborhood. ~ read more about AACH
Over the past year, we have been partnering with them to serve our community. We participate in their "Adopt a Family" program by providing support for a family that is in the process of transitioning from homelessness to independence. Through this program we are able to develop a closer relationship with a family and are better able to be involved in their life. And for the past two years we have participated in AACH's “Look Cool for School” Drive by purchasing new clothes for kids in their transitional housing program. For more information or to get involved, contact Alice Mar at acjhs@juno.com
