Thank You, Donation Week Volunteers!

Our most heartfelt thanks to all the amazing volunteers who braved the subzero temps to help at our stores’ donation doors throughout Donation Week and on the coldest days–Dec 30 and 31! We couldn’t have kept up with the incoming donation flow without the generous souls who gave their time in the cold to help out and support The Arc! You are simply the best!!
