Arlington County Sheriff's Office Collects over 3,800 Pounds of Food for Arlington Food and Assistance Center (AFAC)

The Arlington County Sheriff's Office collected over 3,800 pounds of food for the Arlington Food and Assistance Center (AFAC) though a friendly competition between staff in the Detention Facility and the Courthouse. In the end, it was declared a tie with each section collecting 1, 900 pounds of food for AFAC. Sheriff Arthur was on-hand to present the food to representatives from AFAC.

Arlington, Va., is a world-class residential, business and tourist location that was originally part of the “10 miles square” parcel of land surveyed in 1791 to be the Nation's Capital. Slightly smaller than 26 square miles, it is the geographically smallest self-governing county in the United States, and one of only a handful with the prized Aaa/AAA/AAA bond rating. Arlington maintains a rich variety of stable neighborhoods and quality schools, and has received numerous awards for Smart Growth and transit-oriented development. Home to some of the most influential organizations in the world — including the Pentagon — Arlington stands out as one of America's preeminent places to live, visit and do business.
