Charter Oak Federal Credit Union has provided $2,000 in grant funds to The Arc Quinebaug Valley. The Arc will allocate these funds towards purchasing outdoor musical instruments for a sensory garden that will be created for Arc individuals, as well as the public, to enjoy.  
The sensory garden will be designed with the purpose of stimulating the senses of individuals with disabilities, which will help each person acquire essential life skills at their own peaceful pace.  
The Arc provides programs for individuals with intellectual, developmental and other life-affecting disabilities.  Vocational, residential, recreation, education, day and retirement services offer opportunities for people with disabilities to reach their goals and be integral members of their community.
“We are very excited to give back to the community, while enhancing the lives of those we serve at the same time.  The sensory garden will provide a therapeutic and calming environment for all and we truly appreciate the generosity of Charter Oak Federal Credit Union supporting our mission with this project.” said Susan Desrosiers, executive director of The Arc Quinebaug Valley.  I am delighted by the continued success of this parade and the enthusiasm of the participants and the spectators.
