For the second consecutive year, Amarante’s Winter Wonderland has given The Arc the opportunity to partner with this event to secure outside donations for the organization.  They donated $2,500.
Amarante’s Winter Wonderland is a walkthrough Christmas light display in Dayville consisting of more than 160,000 lights. This holiday experience was open to the community for viewing from Thanksgiving until New Years.
A calendar of events for this wonderland dedicated certain charity nights to partner organizations, such as The Arc. Donation boxes were set up nightly at the entryway for each organization throughout the duration of the wonderland season, which helped to secure various magnitudes of donations from the community.  Other organizations which benefited from Amarante’s Winter Wonderland event included Bags of Hope and Make-A-Wish CT.
This generous gift will be used towards The Arc’s Sensory Garden project at their Cook Hill Office location in Danielson.

Recently, The Boards of Directors of The Arc Quinebaug Valley and The Arc New London County, including family members on both Boards, announced they will be establishing The Arc Eastern Connecticut, merging operations to augment and strengthen service provision for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
