Why should you donate to The Arc

Published 9:06 am Saturday, April 28, 2018

Your gifts, both large and small, will help us to achieve our mission of helping people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.

The Arc Mower County relies on the generosity of people like you to sustain and  expand the ways it helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. Please make success possible by donating today. The Arc Mower County is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.

The Arc Mower County helps  people and families every day and your contribution means a great deal. It means that people who need help to live on their own will  get the support they want to be safe, healthy and contributing members of our  community.  It means that people who want to work and earn money will find their niche.

It means that people will have choices for social, leisure, and  entertainment activities in the community, and that caregivers will be able to  choose the kinds of in-home assistance they need — and when they need it. It means  that families will find support, education and inspiration.

It means our community will be stronger.  Visit our website at www.thearcmc.org or visit our office at 401 2nd Ave NE in Austin. We are the building north of The Salvation Army and west of Riverside Arena.

You will see two signs on our building with our logo.

If you are unable to donate financially, we are always looking for volunteers who can donate their time.

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. 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. To learn more, please contact us at 507-433-8994 or email office@thearcmc.org.
