The Arc of Tippecanoe County needs you and your hunger.  Please visit McDonald’s on Veterens Memorial Parkway Tuesday, September 22 sometime between 5 and 7 pm to place your order.  To make this a little more fun, The Arc of Tippecanoe County has set up a friendly competition between the Adult programs and the Childrens programs.

McDonalds’s and The Arc of Tippecanoe County are hosting an evening of fun. The Arc Children’s Programs versus the Arc Adult Programs in a contest to see who can get the most people to McDonald’s to eat dinner on Tuesday, September 22nd. The group that gets the most people to the fundraiser gets a party hosted by the other group at a later date.  It’s a win-win situation for you and for The Arc!  More importantly, 20% of all proceeds will go toward ALL the programs served by The Arc of Tippecanoe County.  Be sure to stop by the Arc table to let us know which team you are representing!

We have set up a GoFundMe account to help with Camp S.P.A.R.K.S.  Please consider being a hero to a kid at Camp SPARKS. The fee charged to families to attend camp SPARKS is about one half of the actual cost of providing camp. The Arc strives to make meaningful camp affordable for those families dealing with special needs. We hope to raise enough funds from the community and sponsors to help cover the cost of the other half! Our two children have a blast and have no idea they are learning important social skills and life skills!
