The Arc Partners with Montclair Kimberly Academy’s Fencing Club for Parents Night Out

December 11th, 2018

On Friday, December 7th nine young volunteers from Montclair Kimberly Academy’s fencing club attended The Arc of Essex County’s Parents Night Out program which provided parents with an evening of respite care for their children, giving them the opportunity to refuel, recharge, and manage family life.

Throughout the night the fencing club members helped attendees craft snowmen, wreaths, and reindeer made out of pipe cleaners. They also provided snacks and refreshments for all of the evening’s attendees.  At the end of the night, the fencing club donated the excess supplies they brought to The Arc of Essex County's children’s services.

The Arc of Essex County’s next Parents Night Out program will take place on Friday, February 15th at our West Caldwell Hub.  Stay tuned to our social media channels as we announce further details.  If your children are interested in attending, contact Children and Family Services Manager, Jennifer DeBarr, at or (973) 535-1181 ext. 1292.
