As we observe Martin Luther King Day of Service on January 21, I wanted to share one of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s most important quotes, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”
Like the 100+ Arlington-based nonprofits who are members of the Arlington Chamber Community Action Committee, Culpepper Garden is participating in Martin Luther King Day of Service organized by Volunteer Arlington. In fact, Culpepper Garden thrives on volunteer engagement! Our senior community welcomes over 450 volunteers each year to provide programs and activities that encourage health, wellness, and social interaction in our 340-unit apartment community. Culpepper Garden welcomes volunteers of all ages to entertain and engage, help residents maintain their gardens or help with fundraising event – frequently or once-a-year.
Culpepper Garden, owned by nonprofit Arlington Retirement Housing Corporation (ARHC), is the largest community in Arlington providing affordable housing for people over age 62 and the only one in Northern Virginia that provides affordable assisted living. “Our residents can truly age in place,” said Executive Director, Linda Kelleher, “and our promise is that we will continue to provide assisted living care, even after residents have exhausted their financial assets.” If you are interested in helping to brighten the lives of older Arlingtonians, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
