2020 Holiday Appeal

Dear Friend, The air is crisp today, and the changing of the seasons is bringing us closer to the holidays. With the economic effects of COVID-19 having a disproportionate effect on individuals and families served by The Arc Alliance, we are anticipating a surge in support requests. I am writing to you today to request your support this holiday season. Every dollar counts and we need your contribution to make a difference in the life of individuals with a disability. COVID-19 has taken so much from the individuals we serve, and their families. Day programs were closed, virtual Early Intervention services have increased stress among parents and caregivers, and adult clients in independent living have been cut off from family and friends due to [...]

Regarding COVID-19/The Coronavirus

March 18, 2020 Dear Friend, Like all businesses in Pennsylvania, The Arc Alliance adjusted our operations due to COVID-19/The Coronavirus. This is an evolving situation that is changing rapidly. The CDC is recommending social distancing and to stay at home to help defeat this pandemic. Our staff are working from home to support the individuals we serve. Our Spring fundraiser, Gin and All That Jazz, is cancelled due to the CDC recommendations. Due to this, we need to ensure our doors will stay open after this pandemic subsides and we can return to business as usual. Since 1951, The Arc Alliance has been in your community serving children, teens, and adults with disabilities. In order to continue this work, we need your help. If [...]

2019 Annual Campaign – Colton’s Story

“I am a foster mom and received a phone call for the placement of a ten week old baby who was abused at five weeks old. He suffered a traumatic brain injury. When I met him, I was stunned by his appearance. He held a downward gaze, his body was limp, and he did not have functional use of his limbs. The silence was deafening. He never cried. During discharge, I was taught how to administer his medications, feed him through a feeding tube, and was told he would never make ‘a meaningful recovery.’ It was heartbreaking. I had never cared for a medically fragile child before and I was unsure of what his future held. Colton proved them wrong. One of the [...]
