Annual Appeal Success!

January 18th, 2019

We did it!  Your generosity was record setting with more than $26,000 in annual appeal donations to date. Combined with a $29,000 contribution from the Essex County Division of Housing and Community Development, The Arc of Essex County was able to add a brand new, 12-person, wheelchair accessible van to our fleet.  The vehicle hit the roads this week and will now transport program attendees to activities throughout the community, seven days a week.

While the new fee-for-service system enabled The Arc to broaden our scope of services in 2018, there continues to be limited funds for transportation.  Without reliable transportation that accommodates all needs, access to engaging community activities diminishes.  Your ongoing commitment ensures our attendees remain active in their community and enjoy outings to various events throughout the year – thank you.
