  • The Holidays are a time for giving and we hope that you will include The Arc in your generosity. You can make a one time or recurring donation. Or, you can honor someone you love with a donation to The Arc and we will let them know that you honored them by helping individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities achieve their dreams. We depend on the support of our donors to help The Arc serve over 1,200 individuals with disabilities and their families. On behalf of the entire Arc community, we thank you and wish you a very Happy New Year.
