“ANV is a saving grace! Because of multiple health issues, I’m unable to grocery shop for myself. Being on a fixed income, I can’t afford grocery delivery. Arlington Neighborhood Village has a system in place for those receiving services as well as those giving them. All I need to do is contact the ANV office with the information they need, and they do the rest of the work. That makes coordinating with the volunteers effortless. ANV gives me a sense of peace during a troublesome time in my life. I can’t thank them enough!”
“ANV has helped me to stay in my house and I am so grateful. This organization is a God-send for so many of us. ”
“Technology continues to become ever more pervasive in everyday life. Everything, including the toaster, seems to involve a microprocessor of some sort. Not being very technically inclined, I find it increasingly challenging and expensive to operate and maintain ordinary household systems, appliances, computers, cars, tools, gadgets, etc., that I rely on. I’m hoping to draw on the collective knowledge and expertise of village members and volunteers on household maintenance questions so I can limit repairman calls to when they are really needed.”
“I have been very happy with the services I’ve received – putting in my air conditioner, some gardening and setting up my computer. The volunteers have been excellent and well-qualified to do these jobs. They have been super. I’ve been telling all my friends about how wonderful the Village has been.”
