A Gift to The Arc is an Investment in Your Community

Season’s Greetings Friends of The Arc!As The Arc of Schuyler nears the close of 2015, I want to thank you for supporting The Arc this year. The Holiday Season is a time when we all think about ways to help people and organizations in need. That is the purpose of our annual Holiday Appeal.It’s important to note that your holiday gift will help The Arc provide inclusive community opportunities for your neighbors, friends, family members, and volunteers with developmental disabilities.In addition, your gift helps The Arc provide many other supports in our community, including:Public transportation services through Schuyler County Transit and mobility management services through a free information and assistance call service named Transportation Link-Line, which connects people in and around Schuyler County to transportation options.Affordable and free classes and workshops at Franklin Street Gallery welcoming all ages from homeschool students to seniors. The Gallery promotes the work of regional artists and hosts public art receptions to advance the arts in the Schuyler County area.Food co-packing services for start-up food product companies through Glen Industries.Seneca Shine auto detailing for private and commercial customers.Volunteers at local nonprofit organizations. In 2015, more than 700 volunteer hours were provided at Office for the Aging, Seneca View, Watkins Glen Library, our local food pantry and parks, and through a weekly paper shredding service day at The Arc. By coordinating these and other volunteer experiences, people with developmental disabilities are empowered to be meaningfully involved in their community. Please explore our website for information about these and other community services.When you support The Arc of Schuyler, you’re investing in innovative programs that enrich the community.
