SEEC celebrated 16 years of service at their annual event in Arlington. InsideNova reported on the event, where a trio of churches were recognized for their collaboration and support. Also honored with the award named in honor of the late Emily DiCicco was Charles Meng, executive director of the Arlington Food Assistance Center, or AFAC.
To celebrate the organization’s recent 15-year anniversary, even the General Assembly sent along its kudos in the form of a joint resolution patroned by Del. Alfonso Lopez (D-49th) and presented at the Sept. 29 ceremony.
Funds raised during the Sept. 29 event will go to support programs that include an ongoing initiative teaching “green” techniques to women who clean homes and businesses, as well as next spring’s third Latina business-development program.
The Shirlington Employment and Education Center (SEEC) hosted its annual Thanksgiving luncheon for the day laborers at the Macedonia Baptist Church this past Thursday. Thanks to turkey donations and volunteers from AFAC, Our Lady Queen of Peace, Rock Spring Congressional UCC and Arlington Free Clinic, over 100 meals were served. A special note of thanks to Macedonia’s outstanding volunteers and those from other groups who helped make the event a major success.
