Food Drives #

The PTA organizes canned food drives, particularly during school events. A bin is placed in an accessible location and its contents are donated to the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC).

The PTA also collects side dishes to complete the Thanksgiving dinners for Abingdon families in need.

Holiday Gift Card Drive #

The Abingdon PTA partners with the Student Support Team at Abingdon to help support families in need during the holiday season in our school community by providing them with gift cards to local retailers. (This replaces the previous Adopt-a-Family program due to the desire of recipient families to select gifts for their children.)
