Tippy Arc Covid-19 Programming Changes
In order to continue to keep our Arc Community engaged during the Covid-19 Crisis and new Social Distancing policies, we have developed the following programs:
1. Activity Bag distribution- The Arc will distribute art/activity bags twice per month at the Tippecanoe County Mall. We will post an invitation for each bag and members will be required to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve their bag. Members or representatives must have private transportation to the mall…we cannot do walk up pick ups due to covid-restrictions. Volunteers will sign you in and place a bag in your trunk with no contact.
2. Facebook Groups for Caregivers and Arc Friends group- allow you to join from our Facebook page and have contact with other members in a closed group safe environment. Go to our Facebook page and click the groups tab to join.
3. Text Buddies/Pen Pals- We will match Arc members interested in having weekly contact via phone, email, text or letters with another Arc Member. Contact us at email@example.com for more information.
Depending on state and local guidelines, we plan to return with Aktion Club in June and Adult Recreation/Arc on the Go in July. Watch for more information because this could change as our main goal is to keep everyone safe!
We are looking for donations to support our activity bags so we can continue to provide them free and frequently to everyone who wants one. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping or have ideas. We are always looking for Volunteers and great ideas!
Please take care of yourself- wash your hands frequently, stay home if you are sick and as much as you can during this crisis- so we can be together again. I am here is you need to talk- 765-476-3277.
