Director's Gift Buys New Tech for Career Centers

We are so grateful to have amazing staff that support the mission of The Arc Middlesex County. Our Directors and Management generously donate a portion of their paycheck back to the agency each pay period. With these funds, we were able to purchase tablets, xbox consoles, and games for our Career Centers. These technology advancements are so important for our centers. Thank you to our amazing leaders!

Jersey Cares & iconectiv Partner Up To Volunteer for The Arc

This May, The Arc Middlesex County was lucky to have volunteers from iconectiv through Jersey Cares come to our North Brunswick Career Centers for a fun day of volunteering! 

Over 55 Participants in our Career Centers went home with a full veggie garden kit and a picture frame they designed with their picture in it! The volunteers also helped us weed and plant new beautiful flowers in "Marty's Garden" that are now starting to bloom!
