THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED US WRAP THE ARC IN CHEER! ALL OF OUR FAMILIES HAVE BEEN WRAPPED THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!
The financial strains associated with caring for a family member with an intellectual and/or developmental disability can make the holidays an especially difficult time of the year. YOU can help make this season brighter for some of The Arc’s families in need! We hope that you will consider Wrapping an Arc Family in cheer by choosing to sponsor them this Holiday Season.
Below, you can view the wish list each family has created. Keep in mind a gift card to HEB, Walmart, Target, or other retail store is always a great choice! Simply choose the family you would like to “Wrap In Cheer” from the list below.
We are accepting unwrapped gifts for these families through Dec. 16th. Please bring your unwrapped gift(s) marked with the Family # to The Arc of San Antonio, 13430 West Avenue, San Antonio, TX 78216. Also, if you would like to donate gift wrapping materials (bags/giftwrap/tissue paper/ribbon) we would greatly appreciate that as well!
If you or your company would like to help in a different way this Holiday Season, please let us know! Contact Jennifer French at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (210) 490-4300 ext. 104.
