The Arc of Orleans County Gives Back

As part of NYSARC's Gives Back initiative, NYSARC chapters and our state office participated in the President's Project Week from March 25th through March 31st.  This is a week in which we give back to our local communities. 

The Arc of Orleans hosted our first blood drive for The American Red Cross.  16 units were collected which translates to approximately 48 lives that will be saved.

The Arc also collected donations for the Genesee-Orleans Ministry of Concern.  This is the "Agency of Last Resort" because they work with people who have nowhere else to go.   Arc staff donated baby items and personal care supplies.
Executive Director of The Arc of Orleans County, Kellie Spychalski is seen above delivering the donations to Jessica Okoniewski, Assistant Executive Director of the Genesee-Orleans Ministry of Concern.
