Volunteers needed for The Arc

Published 4:51 pm Saturday, December 15, 2012

Volunteers are vital to the programs and services of The Arc Mower County. Volunteers are the backbone of our organization — lending support in a variety of ways to the people and families we serve.

From playing games with preschoolers to helping a young woman practice her batting swing… coaching a sports team to its first win of the season… or working to make an event run smoothly… there are so many ways you can help. Your contribution can make a valuable difference in someone’s life.

Volunteer opportunities exist for individuals and groups. You can help on a one-time basis for our special events or on a regular basis working with people and families in our programs and activities.
