THE LATEST NEWS & EVENTS
THE ARC OF BUNCOMBE COUNTY NEEDS YOU!
As you know our annual meeting and Spring Fling were cancelled this year. However, we are receiving an increase in our service requests because of the COVID-19 pandemic. That is where you come in! We desperately need you to help us meet the needs of our families. For example $400 would provide two weeks of respite services - $500 would help a family from being evicted from their home – $100 would cover the cost of a pair of specialized shoes – and the list goes on and on.
So please join us and become a member of the Arc of Buncombe County. Download the form HERE and mail it to the Arc of Buncombe County with your membership amount.
WE THANK YOU!
