The Holiday Season is fast approaching, and The Arc of Atlantic County once again plans to match community partners with individuals living with disabilities and their families who desperately need our assistance.
Please join us in our 2021 Holiday Partners Program, and help make this season a little more special for individuals living with a disability that live below the poverty level. We have received requests from 150 individuals and families that have requested holiday assistance. Nationally, people who live with disabilities live in poverty at nearly twice the rate of people without disabilities. Last year, 60 out of the 150 people we served were children that would not have otherwise received holiday gifts.
Who are our Community Partners?
Our Community Partners include businesses, individuals, families, schools, community groups, service organizations, and others who have shown their kindness to support our Holiday Partners program. What a wonderful and kind way to experience the true meaning of giving during the holiday season!
How Can You Participate?
This year, as we work to follow COVID-19 health protocols, we are requesting donations to purchase $100 Gift Cards, for each person asking for assistance. You can enlist help from your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers to help provide assistance to people with disabilities during the holidays.
Our goal is to raise just $15,000 for the 150 people who have created wish lists this year.
It’s easy to participate! Simply create your own profile and share your campaign link on your social media platforms and via email with others that might want to help you raise money for this cause. Or just click the Donate Now to give a gift yourself.
Please tag #thearcatlantic #holidaypartners to raise even more awareness to provide help to local people living with intellectual and developmental disabilities in our community.
Help make someone's holiday special this year by helping us provide the resources our families need to have a healthy and happy holiday season.
Please help by clicking on DONATE, choosing any level of support. Every donation helps make the holiday season a little brighter for people living with disabilities.
We appreciate your generosity and kindness. Happy Holidays to All!
