The Arc of East Central Iowa is “Wrapping for a Cause”
The Arc of East Central Iowa, Veridian Credit Union, and Lindale Mall have teamed up to make life a little easier for shoppers again this holiday season. The Arc, now in its 60th year, is a non-profit organization supporting people with intellectual, developmental, and related disabilities, presents its 10th annual “Wrapping for a Cause” fundraiser. The event, located in the food court at Lindale Mall, began on Saturday, November 30th, and will continue every day through December 24th. Take the hassle out of your holiday wrapping and help others by letting The Arc wrap your gifts!
Wrapping for a Cause, sponsored by Veridian Credit Union, is staffed entirely by volunteers beginning at 11:00 a.m. daily (9:00 a.m. on Christmas Eve). The proceeds of this event stay local and allow The Arc to research and implement new programs based on the needs of those served. The Arc strives to further their mission of providing individuals with disabilities the opportunity to live, learn, work and play with freedom and inclusion in their communities. Services and supports at The Arc reach more than 750 individuals and families from eight East Central Iowa counties each year, providing day care, respite, skill building, advocacy, and much more.
