The Arc to Help Local Students

On Oct. 24, The Arc Lane County will teach students at Two Rivers Dos Rios Elementary School about healthy eating habits and nutritious food. We're also excited to host a farmers market where students will select produce to take home.

Come join us! We need volunteers to help with this school-wide initiative. Volunteers can register online . If you have any questions about this fabulous opportunity to help children in the community, contact Erika .

Tree of Joy Deadline Approaching

Every holiday, The Arc partners with local businesses and churches to provide gifts to people who experience disabilities.

All Tree of Joy Gift Request Forms must be submitted by Nov. 1. Due to tight timelines, The Arc WILL NOT accept late forms.

If you know of a church, business or agency that would like to fulfill some of this year's gift requests, or if you would like to purchase a gift for someone, contact Laura . We also need volunteers to help wrap holiday gifts. Sign up to help at one of our fun wrap parties.
Take The Arc Community Awareness Survey

The Arc Oregon is conducting a survey to learn how familiar Oregonians are with The Arc   and its work around the state. Responses will be used to help raise awareness about the vital work The Arc does to advocate with and on behalf of Oregonians with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Take the survey by Nov. 6. If you provide your contact at the end of the survey, you’ll be entered into a drawing for a $50 gift card!
