The Arc Northeastern Pennsylvania Achieve with Us
Auxiliary The Friends of The Arc Auxiliary was formed in 2005 to promote The Arc of Northeastern Pennsylvania and also to support The Arc’s many programs and services. The Auxiliary has helped in many ways by purchasing equipment, winter clothing, activity programs and books. Their volunteer hours are endless: sponsoring a variety of fund raising events; meeting with members of the community and discussing the vital role The Arc plays in the community. Their mission also includes educating school-aged children on the importance of inclusion and recognizing the difference you can make in someone’s life through friendship. The Education Committee has received grants to buy books necessary for their presentations in schools. The Auxiliary’s purpose will continually evolve to meet the on-going needs of The Arc. We encourage the community to join this worthwhile cause. We want to continue to build on the current events by having more of the supporting members involved. Our greatest hope is that you will want to be an active part of the excitement!

AuxiliaryWe are very pleased with how successful last year proved to be for the Auxiliary and The Arc. We are proud of our accomplishments since the formation of the Auxiliary. Many of you have joined us for the fun and exciting events we have held during the past year. We hope you will decide to return and perhaps bring a friend!

This is just a brief account of some of the highlights of the year for a very busy group of ladies:Auxiliary

    • Sara Wolff’s Celebration
    • Bus Trips to Mount Airy and Sands Resort Casinos
    • Readings in 3rd grade classrooms held at John F. Kennedy, Whittier and Forest City Schools
    • Card Party Honoring Claire Maldonato and the Ladies of UNICO
    • Spring Flowers and Poinsettia Sale
    • Cookie Walk

    Please keep in mind that these talented ladies not only donate their time and talents but they also go out and solicit donations from others as well as making and donating numerous gifts and gift baskets for raffles throughout the year.

    The Board has been able to accomplish many goals thus far this year. The two most important roles of The Friends of The Arc Auxiliary have always been raising awareness as well as raising funds for The Arc. The Auxiliary has certainly done a fine job of raising funds through the various functions and activities they have held through the few years they have been in existence! Now, armed with a great group of ladies, their goal is becoming a reality.
