The Arc Awarded National Grant to Engage in Martin Luther King Jr. National Service Day Activities

For a third year, the federal agency that leads national Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), has selected The Arc and five other organizations as grantees to plan and execute volunteer projects that will unite Americans in service. In the first year of funding, chapters of The Arc recruited 705 volunteers who contributed over 5,700 hours of service and fed 10,230 people in need.

The Arc of Luzerne County highlights volunteer work at local food bank in new video

The Arc of Luzerne County recently created a video to showcase the work of their volunteers in their Transition to Community Employment (TRACE) program. Volunteers with disabilities donated their time at a local soup kitchen that feeds over 800 people in need every day. The experience that these volunteers receive not only helps them give back to the community but also develops key employment skills that they can take with them in the future!
