ROSSLYN BID TO KICK OFF THE SEASON OF GIVING WITH HOLIDAY CLOTHING DRIVE, NOVEMBER 30 - DECEMBER 15


Rosslyn BID and A-SPAN are collecting winter coats, sweaters, sweatshirts, and more

WHAT:

‘Tis the season of giving! To kick off the holidays this year, the Rosslyn BID is hosting its annual clothing drive from November 30 - December 15, just look for the gift-wrapped donation boxes at participating buildings in Rosslyn. Since 2011, all items donated have gone to A-SPAN, an organization dedicated to ending homelessness in Arlington, to help those in need stay warm through the winter. It’s been a tremendously difficult year for people everywhere, so here’s your chance to give back to your community, safely. Continue this holiday tradition and clean out those closets for the new year!
