A reminder that our Membership Drive ends at the end of this month.

If you haven’t returned a membership form, signed-up via our website, or signed up as a lifetime member in the past, I humbly ask that you consider doing so soon. That will enable us to have all Foundation members on the membership roster when it goes to The Arc New York and subsequently The Arc national chapter.

Membership is necessary because it allows us to have a voice when approaching legislators and elected officials as we continue to the fight for fair wages and equal opportunities for people with developmental disabilities. The Arc New York is the largest Arc organization in the country due to the number of members across the 48 chapters in our state.

Membership costs ten dollars per person and only $5 for any additional household member you enroll over the age of 18. We just need your name, mailing address, and the payment which is submitted via PayPal. Also, you have the opportunity to gift additional funds which will allow us to enroll people we support and their families who may otherwise not have the funds to do so.

Lastly, all paying members are entered into a drawing to win a new iPad or $50 Gift Card to Amazon. If you have any other questions about membership, please let me know. The link to the membership page on our website is https://www.thearcolc.org/arc-membership/
