The Arlington Life Shelter supports homeless families and individuals with services including employment and educational aid, health care, nutrition, and transitional housing.
“In order to avoid holding a load of donated milk that spoils, Arlington Life Shelter hopes to establish a milk budget to buy milk on an as-needed basis,” the shelter said. “With this fund, it can gradually acquire milk during the course of 10 weeks without ever storing up more than it can use,”
The campaign is free to the shelter, which receives all proceeds from pledges, Liesl Gray, spokeswoman for the shelter, said.
