ROSSLYN, VA — With Thanksgiving in the rearview mirror, many people are looking ahead to the season of giving. As such, the Rosslyn BID (Business Improvement District) is hosting its annual clothing food drive to help those in need in the Arlington community.
From Monday until Dec. 15, members of the public are invited to drop off new or gently used winter coats, sweaters, sweatshirts, hats and gloves in plastic bags to a gift-wrapped donation box in the lobby of the following residential buildings around Rosslyn:
- 1800 Oak Apartments. (1800 N Oak St.)
- Bennett Park (1601 Clarendon Blvd.)
- Homewood Suites (1900 N Quinn St.)
- River Place North (1121 Arlington Blvd.)
- River Place East (1021 Arlington Blvd.)
- River Place South (1011 Arlington Blvd.)
- River Place West (1111 Arlington Blvd.)
- Turnberry Tower (1881 N Nash St.)
- Waterview (1111 19th St.)
Each participating building will provide two to eight gift-wrapped donation boxes. Those who don’t live in these buildings can drop off their donations Monday-Friday, from 9-5 p.m., outside the Rosslyn BID Office (1911 North Fort Myer Drive, LL-10).
All of the items collected will go to A-SPAN, an organization dedicated to ending homelessness in Arlington, to help keep people in need warm through the winter.
