#GivingTuesday is a worldwide event that is dedicated to get people involved in their communities. It is celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (U.S) and the well-known shopping events of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday is to provide awareness of organizations and events in the world. The Arc decided to participate in the event with our new program ArcBucks. Arcbucks will allow our people with intellectual and developmental disabilities learn the value and importance of saving money by teaching them to save up for certain items. We are asking our community to donate things such as gift cards, CDs, movies and clothing (hats, shirts, ECT.) so that we can provide a store for our people to shop in and spend their ArcBucks.
