Pine Belt ARC makes Christmas merry for many

 The Pine Belt Region of the ARC is making Christmas a little more merrier for some folks with their ARC Angel Program.

About 35-people with intellectual or developmental disabilities from around the area were referred to ARC to receive a Christmas present valued at $25 or more. ARC was provided a list of items that the referrals need or want for Christmas. They they presented the list to folks in the community to help meet those needs. ARC was able to meet the needs for everyone on the list.

"This time of year it's very important to remember those that otherwise wouldn't have a Christmas," said Stephanie Sinclair, ARC Board Member.

ARC has several programs and services to help people who are intellectually or developmentally disabled.
