Approximately 5,000 grocery workers in and around the Arlington community recently received gift bags from Grace Community Church, part of the congregation’s efforts to thank those supporting the region during the COVID pandemic.

“Grocery-store workers are the unsung heroes in this fight,” church leaders said, after assembling 75 volunteers to put together the thousands of gift bags.

“We are so excited to be part of this operation and to just show a little bit of appreciation to everything you’ve been doing.” Anna Maia, director of compassion and justice at the church.

The employees – working at 60 grocery stores in the region, received a gift card, kind bars, lip balm and a button reading “essential” to show they are appreciated.
