Hundreds Celebrate The Holidays With The Arc

The Arc rolled out the holiday cheer for our annual Holiday Open House on Monday, December 4. Hundreds of our closest friends turned out to celebrate the season with us at our spacious home in Denver West.
 
Adult advocate Jeanne Weis and her merry band of musicians entertained our guests with a festive blend of Celtic and holiday music, while Santa and magician Amy Arpan brought lots of joy to folks of all ages. We’d like to extend a hearty thanks to everyone who attended for their strong support of The Arc and our work on behalf of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Your Year-End Gift Can Change Lives

Your donations to The Arc help ensure people with disabilities get the support and guidance they need when they need it most, free of charge. Your gift will help:

•   José get support in his 3rd grade classroom, allowing him to learn alongside his friends
•   Emily keep her job, despite challenges with her boss and co-workers
•   Patrick determine where he will live and who will care for him when his terminally ill mother passes away

We are almost halfway to our goal of raising $16,000 by December 31st. Help close the gap with a year-end gift:

•   By check: Mail to 13949 W. Colfax Ave, Bldg 1, Suite 150, Lakewood, CO 80401
•   By text: Text ARCDONATE to 50155
