The Arc of Rensselaer County is hosting a COVID friendly drive through fundraising event on May 2, 2021 from 9-am-3 pm. Find us at Heims Gas Station 5 North Greenbush Road, North Greenbush. We will be collecting returnable cans and bottles, clothing and textiles and cash donations.
Just load your trunk, drive over to Heims and we will unload it from there. You never have to leave your vehicle!
Items such as shoes, boots, clothing, rags, stuffed animals, bedding, pillows, blankets, worn out dog beds, leashes, curtains, fabric etc. are among accepted items. Mattresses or furniture are not accepted.
100% of the net profits from this event will go toward the development of a technology integrated state of the art sensory room at our Brunswick Center Day Services. BCS provides day services to adults, many who have sensory sensitivities that affect their daily lives. Our Sensory Room will help to provide opportunity for exercising motor skills and emotional regulation, as well as the chance for integrative experiences that might not be possible otherwise. Especially in our present day restrictions due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are relying on technology to bridge many gaps. The utilization of an interactive touch wall system would be an invaluable tool for meeting daily living goals and providing the capability of visual and sensory experiences limited only to the imagination.
So go ahead, clean our those closets, grab your cans and bottles then bring them over to us! You will feel better meeting your goals while helping us meet ours!
