Since 1953, The Arc of Tippecanoe County has been committed to it’s mission that all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities realize their goals of living, learning, working and fully participating in the Greater Lafayette Community. We do this through Education, Advocacy and Social Programs. This year has been a hard year for our 500+ members due to loss of jobs, social contacts and a direct service staffing crisis not to mention limited contact with loved ones who do not live with them. Our organization went from three different in-person events per month to three in-person events for 2020. Thanks to our wonderful Volunteers we switched gears and came up with new no contact ideas for events but it is just not the same as that personal contact we are used to.
This year for our Giving Tuesday Fundraiser I am asked for your help through donations of time, talent and treasure to help us make sure that every Tippy Arc Member gets a personal Holiday Card this year. We need about 750 cards to make this happen along with postage for these cards.
You can go out and purchase a box of cards- add a personal message and sign them- Arc Volunteers will pick them up and mail them.
You could also make a donation through Facebook to purchase cards and stamps for this project. We also appreciate any donation to support our mission.
