Cake Auction benefiting Arc of McLennan County
The Arc Summer Camp provides a safe, structured environment for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities who often have no other childcare options for the summer. Local schools are able to provide such a setting during the school year, but once school is out that setting is no longer available. Their parents often work during the day and cannot stay home to provide the care these children need, therefore, The Arc Summer Camp provides a vital service to these children and their families.
Typically, about 10 families are in need of scholarships for their child to be able to attend summer camp. This summer, however, the need is even greater. An additional 10 children have lost their camp funding through MHMR due to state cut-backs. It costs $1,000 per child for
the eight-week summer camp, so The Arc will need to raise an additional $10,000 in scholarships to accommodate these families.
Please help AAUMC & The Arc raise the money that is needed to allow these families to send their kids to camp.
